During the summer of 2023, a member of Grace proposed the idea to the Grace council to house a migrant 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 will house a migrant asylum-seeking family and 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!
