Immigrant and Refugee Response

Week of Compassion provides Afghan Welcome congregational support grants to encourage and strengthen Disciples churches in welcoming Afghans to communities across the U.S., in partnership with their local resettlement agencies. This grant can be used for congregational ministries that help with food assistance, rent, or any other essentials. Grants range from $500-$2,000.
Multiple phases of care and response have unfolded since the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces in February 2022. Timelines continue to unfold while the war carries on and the needs of the Ukrainian people continue to emerge. Our partners continue to work locally to build and support structures in place to care for internally displaced persons and refugees in this crisis.
As the situation continues to unfold in Ukraine, Week of Compassion will continue to find ways to empower congregations engaged in the work of refugee support.
