Nesting  A HOME 

for refugees

"You must love [the immigrant] as yourself, because you were immigrants in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God."
                                                                                        - Leviticus 19:24

As we seek to love our neighbors near and far,  we are partnering with the African Community Center and Deer Park United Methodist Church to Nest-A-Home for a newly-arrived refugee family settling in the Denver area.

Nesting a Home involves collecting all the initial furnishings and household items that a family will need as they settle into their new home in the USA. At UMCE, we are coordinating the collection of items to ensure that when a refugee family arrives, they have a safe, secure, and fully stocked home in which to begin their new lives.

At UMCE, our Nest-A-Home project happens during the season of Lent. We have participated in this project in 2022 and 2023 and we hope to do it again in 2024!

2023 Nesting Project Update!

Thank you to everyone who donated items or gave a financial contribution toward our 2023 Nesting Project! We were able to collect all of the items on our list and then some!

The family we worked with for this project was a family of 3 with a young child. They are settling in and we were glad to be a small part of welcoming them to their new life in the USA.
