Refugee Resettlement

About This Important Work

Peace Lutheran Church is partnering with Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) to relocate a refugee family of four from Venezuela to Southern Maryland in the summer of 2024.


Peace Lutheran will host fundraisers and accept contributions of home items and clothing to support the family upon arrival. Keep an eye on this page for updates on the status of resettlement and gift requests.

Why Are Fundraisers Needed?

The United States Department of State funds an initial amount of money to assist the family during their first 90 days in the United States; however, this money is quickly spent due to housing and other immediate necessities. Peace Lutheran Church and our other faith-based partners will host fundraisers and other clothing drives to aid the family with their expenditures while they look for work and enroll in school.


Housing is pricey and difficult to secure in today's market. Peace Lutheran Church is actively seeking safe and affordable accommodations for their family. Fundraising earnings will be used to offset housing costs.
