A call to faith       ...to believe that
lives can be restored.

 A call to charity...   
to respond to need with a heart of love.
Each year thousands of immigrants and refugees come to the United States seeking to make a new life for themselves. Some are victims of war, oppression, and political turmoil. Others are coming to join loved ones. All come seeking the opportunity to live in peace, safety, and freedom. Upon arrival in the United States, these new Americans face the challenge of starting lives anew, often with little more than just a few material possessions. They must immediately attend to basic needs, such as food, clothing, shelter and jobs, while learning a new language and navigating the many cultural variations in our society.

You can help us provide for the temporary needs of these individuals by contributing now.
