Ways to serve the neighborhood
We have partnered with Hope for San Diego to help serve our North Park neighborhood and the greater San Diego area. We want to show Jesus’s love to those around us and care for the needs of many who live in and around our neighborhood. If you’re interested in joining us or would like more info, email our Director of Missions & Mercy Ministries Will Carreras.
There are many opportunities to serve with Hope for San Diego. We have focused on three:
San Diego Refugee Tutoring
Many of our neighbors down the street in City Heights are refugees, which means they were forced to flee a harmful, violent situation in their home country and have been re-settled in our neighborhood. We’ve developed a relationship with an organization called San Diego Refugee Tutoring, which seeks to come alongside refugee kids and their families and support them as they adjust and learn a whole new way of life in a new country where they’ve had to start all over with nothing.
World Relief Good Neighbor Teams
Our desire is not only to serve refugees in the short term as they arrive but to build long-term relationships that lead to their thriving in this country. You can be part of a team that welcomes and befriends refugees together, building relationships that transcend cultural boundaries. To find out more go HERE.
Restoration 225 Care Communities
There is a great need for foster care and support in our city. We form Care Communities in partnership with Restoration 225 to care for local foster/kinship families. Our hope is that the families we are connected with feel the support of the local church and community while they are caring for these children in their homes.
