Our Mission

We partner with area churches to follow Christ’s call to Welcome the Stranger by providing key resettlement resources for immigrants & refugees in South Chicago & Northwest Indiana.

Together, we advocate for migrant newcomers by providing legal & resettlement services, volunteer mobilization, & spiritual guidance so that they can build lives of grace & self-sufficiency.
