The mission of Immanuel House Refugee Project is to provide transitional housing to newly arrived refugees seeking freedom from persecution and the opportunity to thrive.


Our vision is a world where all people displaced by war and violence can find a safe and secure home.

The work of Immanuel House Refugee Project is based on the following beliefs:

Once in the U.S., refugees seize the chance for a new beginning. They put down roots, attend school, get jobs, pay taxes and become productive members of their communities. They start businesses and make our communities more vibrant and diverse. Refugees share many of America’s values: courage, resilience, openness to new experiences, and the determination to rebuild their lives in a new land.
