update: June 6, 2019

On Sunday, the Refugee and Immigration Committee unanimously voted to officially co-sponsor Bahati and her son Antony (the second family), which will expand our co-sponsorship commitment to two moms and their children, all originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo via many years in a refugee camp in Tanzania. We are currently three weeks into a 6-month commitment and life-changing relationships. Here are some ways you can be involved: 

  • Keep following the sign-up genius, which is updated multiple times a week, to see what is still needed for our families as we prepare to set up the second apartment for Bahati and Antony
  • Come to the Hope Welcome Party for Walengamina, Raphael, Feza, Bahati, and Antony on June 23rd at noon. There will be lunch, games and activities, and a chance to extend a warm welcome to new friends.  All Hope members and friends are invited.
  • If you desire more direct involvement with our co-sponsorship role, please join the refugee and immigration committee.  We have sub-committees working on gathering clothing, furniture, and household items, stocking the pantry, transportation, community guides, health advocates, job development, and learning English/conversation.  
  • The next Refugee and Immigration Committee Meeting is Wednesday, June 19th at 7:00pm at Hope.

Please contact Jessica Beamer to get involved!


Note:  The photos above are from the past two week’s activities as we took our new friends on shopping trips to Meijer, the post office, CVS drugstore, a doctor appointment, and to the park for an afternoon of fun.

update: May 17, 2019

The Refugee and Immigration Committee is very pleased to share that immediately after our two weeks of orientation with Samaritas, we have been matched with a family newly arrived in the U.S. as legal refugees. The family of three is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo but has spent the last two decades in a refugee camp in Tanzania. Samaritas has moved them from a motel into a minimally ready apartment in Hamtramck. We look forward to everyone at Hope having the chance to meet Wilengamina (age 29) and her two children, Raphael (14) and Feza (3). In addition, Wilengamina and her family will soon be joined by newly arrived family members and another newly arrived family, all from the Congo via Tanzania.  While Hope will be officially co-sponsoring 5 individuals, we are committed to setting up apartments for and extending hospitality to all 10 of these individuals who will soon be located in Hamtramck. This will be an ongoing and fluid process so please watch Hope’s eNews and in-service announcements for what help is needed and when. The current needs are available at this sign-up genius link that will be updated regularly. Donated items should be brought to Classroom 5 at Hope.  Thank you, Hope members and friends, for walking alongside these families as they courageously begin anew.  Jessica Beamer djbeamer@sbcglobal.net
