Aaron assisted three Haitian children who are in the United States without parents and with no immigration status in applying for TPS, and assisted with their adoption by a U.S. citizen uncle to allow them to eventually become U.S. permanent residents. He provided visa assistance to the Holocaust Learning and Education Fund, enabling Holocaust educational services to be provided by a German expert to public schools in South Florida.
