Synopsis

In partnership with Texas Monthly, Katy Vine's "Lost and Found" is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program.

Katy Vine's "Lost and Found" is a thoughtful and uplifting look into a refugee community in the heart of Texas at a time when political sentiment surrounding refugees and immigration turned increasingly negative.

Texas is known nationwide for accepting a high ratio of refugees admitted to the United States. Though most end up in Houston, the smaller city of Amarillo has become a harbor for new immigrants looking to start anew. One key part of the vital Amarillo refugee community is Evelyn Lyles, a woman in her 60s who volunteers her time to help families assimilate and learn the ways of their new homeland. Her help ranges from assisting new families with the myriad forms and paperwork required of them; rallying community support to pay for steep medical bills; or simply, serving as a friendly, generous neighbor.

"Lost and Found" is a snapshot as life as a refugee, honing in on a few families, each with their own struggles and obstacles, their own dreams and hopes for the future, and the common thread of a helping hand in Evelyn.
