Kathie joins Msgr. Sullivan in studio to discuss the work of Hearts and Homes for Refugees, how she and other volunteer members welcomed a Syrian refugee family of six to their community back in 2017, and how they have sustained the involvement of very engaged volunteer members of Hearts and Homes for Refugees over the last two years when the settlement programs they work with have themselves have been at risk.

Before the opening of the United Nation’s 73rd General Assembly on Tuesday, September 18th, Dr. Novosseloff discusses the important work of the United Nations, how effective the United Nations has been in that work, and some ways the United Nations effectiveness might be improved.
