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.
One of the ways we have been doing this is through San Diego Refugee Tutoring – a weekly opportunity to come alongside children and support them in their learning.
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.
If you’re interested in joining us or would like more info, email Jake Portugal!
Other Opportunities to Serve with Hope for San Diego
Hope for San Diego carefully selects trustworthy non-profit organizations as their partners. While they collaborate with many others throughout the city, these organizations are the primary focus of volunteer engagement and annual grantmaking.
Alabaster Jar Project is a resource center and recovery home for survivors of human trafficking.
A Step Beyond empowers underserved youth through dance education, academic support, and family services.

Grace Kids Preschool
Covenant Church is also a partner with Grace Kids Preschool providing more preschool space to the North Park neighborhood. This opportunity allows us to be a blessing to nearly a hundred families and still use our children’s space for Sunday gatherings. We are delighted to join with the staff of Grace Kids to partner with them in the work of caring for their preschool students.
