Asylum-Seeker and Refugee Resettlement
Our North Shore Sponsor Circle helps those seeking asylum resettle in the Chicago area. It includes members of our four Better Together Episcopal Churches; it is also open to anyone who would like to help with this work. We began our work with Afghan migrants. (You can read a story about Afghan migrants in the Chicago area, and our work to welcome them, in this story from the Chicago Tribune.)
We are now working with an extended family of thirteen that has come to us from Venezuela. In addition to providing housing and financial support, we are connecting them legal help to begin their asylum claims.
If you would like to learn more about this project, you can email our circle. You can also donate to this project directly; all proceeds either contribute directly to our current guests or will be used to support future migrants.
