(Camp Atterbury, Ind.) - Resettlement efforts are continuing at Camp Atterbury. 

The camp, located about 40 miles south of Indianapolis, is one of eight sites across the country that has temporarily taken in Afghan evacuees. 

Approximately 65,000 Afghans were evacuated from their homeland following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan. Camp Atterbury is capable of hosting around 2,500 evacuees as part of Operation Allies Welcome.

Team Rubicon is working in coordination with the Department of Defense and other organizations to meet the humanitarian needs of Afghan families temporarily relocated to Indiana.

The Camp Atterbury Afghan Resettlement Needs include:

  • Fall clothing (men, women, children)
