Care for and support refugee families that are restarting their lives in Portland.

“When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt.”

Leviticus 19:33-34

Refugee Resettlement Teams

We are witnessing the world’s worst refugee crisis since World War II. In the next year, an estimated 1,300 refugee families will arrive to Portland and have to quickly restart their lives.

We are forming teams to welcome these refugee families by helping to set up their new apartments, picking them up from the airport, teaching them how to use public transport, setting up bank accounts and more.
