Building relationships with people who had to start a new life
We believe in a relational church that lives life alongside our neighbors. We we offer accommodations for asylum seekers and refugees and our church members build relationships with people from countries like Afghanistan, Iran and Syria.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenging time for our friends living in refugee housing. Social workers and government programs they have grown to rely on have not been available through the shut down. Most do not have internet or are no longer able to afford if after being sent home from their jobs, and the refugee housing has strict visitation regulations. Our friends in these homes are more lonely and isolated from the world than most of us have experienced while in quarantine.
We are also working to provide free WiFi to all residents in the apartment building we own.
