Upcoming Events

Week of Prayer for Unaccompanied Refugee and Asylum-Seeking Children: For the week of February 17th we are inviting churches to join us in the 9:36 Prayer Initiative with a focus on praying for unaccompanied children at 9:36 a.m. and p.m. each day. You can access this Introduction for your congregation that explains why we are praying for these children. You can also use the Prayer Guide to inspire daily prayer. Some churches will also be meeting together on the evening on February 19th for a time of communal prayer for these children. If you are in the Philadelphia area and would like to join our prayer gathering on the 19th, please email us.

Awareness Campaigns

The Peace Between Film Project
This documentary features three vignettes of local people (in The Netherlands, Hungary and France) developing friendships with refugees who have arrived in their towns. It is a candid view of what it means to be a neighbor, and what cross-cultural friendships may look like.

We are privileged to be a small sponsor of this film, and also to help develop the materials churches will use to open dialogue around this topic as well as to dig into what the Bible says.
Why is Refugee Connect a sponsor?

Programs in Development

We continually work with our network members to understand needs, identify gaps and build relationships with NGOs, government, businesses, educators, and associations. In this process, we work together to share resources as well as launch new programs to help the refugee youth we care for. The following are in development:
  • Business Incubator
  • Trauma Care Through the Arts
  • Alternative Housing for URM Turning 18 in Shelters
  • URM Foster Care Awareness Initiative

Please email us for updates or to join in these projects.
