Congregations on Capitol Hill have long been supportive of ending homelessness and lifting families out of poverty. This month, five congregations are forming the Good Neighbor Program Capitol Hill to extend this mission to international refugees.
Lutheran Church of the Reformation, Capitol Hill United Methodist Church, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Hill Havurah and Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church will organize as a chapter of the national Good Neighbor Program organized by Lutheran Social Services/National Capitol Area (LSS/NCA), a key State Department sponsoring organization.
As “Good Neighbors” Capitol Hill congregations will have the opportunity to assist refugee families in various ways including support with accommodations and household goods, assist with language and cultural training, and provide job assistance.
For more information on refugee resettlement and and how a congregation as well as other individuals or groups can join the Good Neighbor Program either with the Capitol Hill chapter of congregations or by forming their own group with Lutheran Social Services, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
