Immigrant Welcome

Immigrant Welcome Volunteering

Thank you for volunteering to help welcome immigrants who are transiting through D.C. On Saturdays, New York Avenue Presbyterian Church is offering daytime respite space for immigrants arriving in the city to meet with volunteer organizations and mutual aid to figure out travel plans and other next steps.

During your volunteer slot you may be preparing and serving food, sorting through clothes and other donations, running errands for necessities that arise, and/or otherwise being a friendly and welcoming face. If you know Spanish or another foreign language that is helpful but NOT necessary - Google Translate and a smile go a long way.

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Please arrive on time for your slot at New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, 1313 New York Avenue, NW (on New York Ave between 13th and 14th Streets; entrance is at street level on New York Ave). Paid street parking and paid garage parking on H Street are available. 5 minute walk to MacPherson Square metro.

Contact Courtney Spearman with questions ([email protected], 202.631.2688)

PS: If you are interested in volunteering on a Saturday other than the ones posted here, consider signing up with our partner church, St Thomas Episcopal. We are hoping to support each other with volunteers when the other church is hosting.

Thank you!
