Disengaged and Vulnerable

Refugees easily become disengaged from healthy society and become vulnerable to all types of evil alternatives as a result.  Hope In Our City exists to engage refugees where they are so they can connect in healthy ways to society and their community.  

Hope In Our City has been able to connect with a local group of Somalian Refugees in the Sun Valley area.  It has been a great joy to get to know them, see their smiles and hear their dreams.  We pray for a bright future for them, full of hope today and for eternity.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal about a town in Minnesota and their approach to prevent extreme groups from picking up Somalian Refugees as recruits.
