A New Network: Partners in Welcome

Episcopal Migration Ministries has created a new program, Partners in Welcome, to build a mission-driven community rooted in loving God and Christians’ shared value to love our neighbor. The network is open to all organizations and individuals dedicated to welcoming newcomers, educating communities, and developing advocates.

“Partners in Welcome is a community where we — individuals, groups, churches, communities — come together to learn from one another, support one another, and inspire new people to become part of the refugee and immigrant welcoming movement,” said Allison Duvall, manager for church relations and engagement.

The network’s online portal will launch Feb. 28, offering network members the opportunity to access resources, exchange ideas, and connect with others involved in refugee and immigrant welcome.

Partners in Welcome is made possible by a United Thank Offering grant.
