World Relief

Sierra has the privelege of partnering with World Relief, a Christian Non-profit, in welcoming government approved refugees into the sacramento area.

We have a Good Neighbor Team that walks alongside a family for six months. our team welcomes them into the US, often picking them up from the airport, gets their apartment furnished and ready. We then make weekly visits to help them navigate everything from helath insurance and doctors appointments to finding a job, finding grocery stores and getting their drivers license.

We had the privilege of walking alongside two families last year and are about to welcome a new family at the end of February or the beginning of March.

We would love to have you involved. Here are a few ways:

Put together a welcome kit: This is a simple way to help welcome the family in. Our small groups are doing this as well, but if you would like to put one together, we would love that! You can download the instructions here, choose one, put it together and return it to the church office.

Furniture and other items (not part of the welcome kit): Dresser, Kitchen Table and chairs, Couch, chair, Lamps, Coffee table, end table, mop, broom/dust pan, vacuum cleaner, tea kettle, dish rack, Tupperware, ice trays, measuring cups/spoons, bath mat, plastic file box, & first aid kit.

If school aged children: school supplies, back pack, car booster seat.

If a baby: car seat, crib, stroller, high chair, formula, & plastic dishes.

Miscellaneous: SIM card, Uber gift card, Laptop, TV, bicycle, messenger bag.

Join the team. We would love to have you join the team! Contact Bobbi Jo Forsyth at bobbijoforsyth@gmail.com or John Stanley at johnpaulstanley@icloud.com.
