Assisting Refugees

Our ministry to refugees includes:

  • Advocacy and Interaction
  • In Fall 2016, North Church helped settle a family from Eritrea.
  • Organizations We Support
    • Music in Exile is traveling the world to record the songs and stories of people displaced by war and violence.
    • Journey’s End which assists families approved for permanent resettlement in the US. In the past two decades we have helped Vietnamese, Cambodian, Ethiopian, Ukrainian, Russian-Armenian, and Bosnian refugees.
    • Catholic Charities Refugee Program which has been working with refugees locally since 1923, providing non-sectarian services including immigration assistance, ESL classes and employment counseling.
    • Jericho Road Community Health Center provides full spectrum medical care to all who need it – especially the medically underserved, including many refugees and immigrants.
    • Stitch Buffalo welcomes all kinds of help. We always need donations and are actively seeking volunteers to help with running classes, retail sales, class preparation, and much more. If you’d like to be a part of Stitch Buffalo, contact us  and tell us a little more about your interests and talents. We’d love to hear from you!
