STABLIZE MINISTRY: The cost to establish a newly arriving refugee family or to come alongside a refugee family on the edge of financial ruin is tremendious.

We expect to spend almost $119,000 for refugees to experience much needed restoration in 2022.
INTEGRATE MINISTRY: The cost to help refugees understand and navigate life in the US will be over $33,000 this year.
