A commitment to refugee resettlement has a long history in the DMV area.  Lutheran Social Services of the National Capitol Area has participated in the resettlement of refugees for many years as one of three agencies in our region which share this responsibility.  GNCH is an implementing partner to LSS along with many other community groups.

These conversations with volunteers provide a vision for this activism.

Become A Donor

Good Neighbors Capitol Hill relies on the generosity of individuals and institutions which enable us to provide fully furnished apartments for newly arriving refugee and immigrant families and asylum seekers. Donated furniture, kitchen supplies, bedding and other items are beautifully recycled to create a home at minimal cost, but it is still necessary to purchase groceries, cleaning supplies, toiletries, mattress pads, pillows and other household goods which are not usually donated. 

Additionally we receive emergency requests from refugee families for medical needs, scholarships, training programs, citizenship applications, and food (especially during the COVID pandemic.)

Donations to Good Neighbors Capitol Hill can be made in two ways:

Write a check to Lutheran Church of the Reformation (our 501c3 fiduciary agent) and indicate for GNCH-Refugee in the lower left corner.  Checks can be mailed to: Good Neighbors Capitol HIll, c/o Lutheran Church of the Reformation, 212 East Capitol Street NE, Washington, DC 20003
