Help Tangibly

65 million people were forced from their homes in 2015. That is the highest amount ever recorded. 21 million of those are refugees, and half are under the age of 18.

God cares deeply about this suffering "The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God" (Leviticus 19:33-34). 

In recent history, approximately 70,000 refugees have come to the United States each year, fleeing danger or persecution. We have the privilege of welcoming them and helping them adjust.
