Fundraising to resettle another family began in January 2017 with individual donations and a Jan. 21 community dinner co-hosted with Riverside Presbyterian. The link below will take you to an online donation site established for our Riverside Refugee Resettlement Project through RefugeeOne, the Chicago organization we work with for resettlement efforts.

Please share this link with your family and friends so we can meet our financial goal of $8,000. We plan to resettle another family between mid-March and mid-April 2017.  We are also gathering household items for the family - please check the list near the front door of the sanctuary to see what else is needed. Thank you!
