Care for Refugees

Every day, refugees are forced to leave everything to find security, opportunity and a new place to call home.

Often, they enter a country with few resources and unable to speak, read or understand the language. They arrive with tremendous dreams, but their needs leave them vulnerable to manipulation and abuse.

From refugee camps to permanent resettlement, you and your church can walk with them along their journey, protecting them and helping them adapt through intentional support and genuine friendship. Be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus as you help them find spiritual, physical and emotional healing.
