We Value People
We Value Teamwork
Being Human Together Means Walking Beside Those On a Difficult Journey
WE VALUE TEAMWORK
We create teams to accompany Asylum Seekers in hospitality and companionship as they journey through their legal process. This includes hosting our guests in private homes, financially and materially providing for their initial needs until they receive their Employment Authorization Document, connecting them with the larger community and its resources, and emotionally supporting them as they work through their past and look to their future.
WE VALUE PEOPLE
Asylum Seekers have endured oppression and violence in its most cruel and dehumanizing forms, and have survived. We recognize the strength, perseverance, and courage that Asylum Seekers have demonstrated just to arrive at the border of the United States, only to discover that they must then navigate a capricious and unjust immigration system here.
WE VALUE RELATIONSHIPS
This effort is founded on the principle that entering into long-term, personal relationships with people who have lived oppression and accompanying them as they seek permanent refuge in the United States is capable of transforming the physical situation of our guests, our own understanding of our role in society, and the power systems that create unjust conditions that our guests experience.
Their journey is ultimately their own, and so we plan for and strive to act in a way that our guests have as much choice, agency, autonomy and dignity as possible.
