WHO IS “WELCOMING THE STRANGER” REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP GROUP?
We represent five Lutheran church congregations from West Edmonton and Parkland County:
OUR GOALS FOR REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP:
Refugee sponsorship is about hope in the face of desperation!
Our financial commitment to the refugee family is for one year. It is not unusual for a refugee family to become economically self-sufficient within the first year of sponsorship. However, relationships and friendships last forever, so our contact with the family is anticipated to be on-going, even after the year of sponsorship is over.
YOU CAN HELP WITH FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:
The estimated cost of sponsoring a refugee family for the usual one-year period is approximately $30,000.00. You can use the secure forms below to help us reach that goal by making a one-time donation now, or by pledging a monthly amount that you wish to contribute over the next year.
YOU CAN HELP BY VOLUNTEERING:
We are recruiting a network of volunteers to support our refugee family through their first year. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities please contact Pastor Philip Penrod at Our Savior Lutheran Church - PastorPhil@oslc-oursavior.com.
