Caring for Our New Foreign-Born Neighbors

Caring for Our New Foreign-Born Neighbors

With the Taliban taking over Afghanistan, many Afghan lives are in danger, especially those who have been working alongside our U.S. Troops. The U.S. has prioritized 70,000 Afghans to be evacuated for resettlement within our borders over the next few weeks. However, with their temporary humanitarian parole status, they will not have the range of benefits that are traditionally given to refugees and SIVs. Our government will not provide housing, food assistance, language and job services, or medical and mental health services. This is where our church can enter into their story.

Lighthouse is partnering with World Relief as we expect over 5,000 refugees to enter Seattle over the next few months. World Relief (with its main hub right here in Seattle) is the largest Christian organization authorized to resettle refugees and asylum-seekers.
