German in Distress
Hello, I am not sure if you can help me but here we go.
Yesterday at my church a gentleman named Wilhelm Joseff
came by who is experiencing difficulties getting orientated to the United States. His Paper work says he is a German resident.
He has not been able to obtain a work visa and he is currently living in a homeless shelter here in Des Moines.That shelter is the central Iowa Shelter. I am concerned for him because he has no SSN of corse and his time in C.I.S. is limited and he may find it dificult to get into other shelters without social security, though i am working on that as well. Can you help me help him? Do you have information that I can use? You Can contact me at or I can also be reached at 515 803 7887 after Tuesday. Any information will be welcome. Thank You for your attention, John Teeter
