Migrant Assistance

In News by Kim Eiffert

Volunteers, Meals, and Donations Needed

Grace Avenue is partnering with Oak Lawn United Methodist Church to support those seeking asylum who are arriving in our community.  The situation at the border is very unpredictable and we are only receiving short notice of needs so we appreciate patience and your rapid response when we are made aware of needs.


In the last two weeks, we welcomed nearly 250 migrants at our welcome center—more than we ever have before! With Title 42 expiring, we are ready to welcoming even more.

 There is no way we can do this crucial work without your help. You play a vital role in making our new migrant neighbors feel welcome, safe, and loved. 

Contact Keri Keck at 
keri@graceavenue.org to find out how you can help.


There are volunteer sign up links HERE.  
(This link will be updated on an ongoing basis with new needs and we will communicate as much as we know at any given time. )

Contact Laura Echols-Richter at laura@graceavenue.org with questions.

 Donations are needed to make this all possible. If you can't volunteer we are requesting supplies through an Amazon Wishlist as well as financial donations.
