During the summer of 2023, a member of Grace proposed the idea to the Grace council to house an asylum-seeking family in our building. Following many meetings, discernment, and planning, the Grace community overwhelmingly voted in favor of housing a migrant family on Sunday, November 5th, 2023.
In partnership with Faith Community Initiative, Grace is housing an asylum-seeking family and will support them with all of their immediate needs as they await their work permits. Initially, we are committed to housing this family for one year.
Grace is a congregation of justice seekers who are not scared to get their hands dirty while working for the liberation of all of God's beloved children. We are a small but scrappy group!
