Neighbors in Need – Working Toward a Just World for All

A just world begins with justice— we commit to supporting and living practices that are grounded in justice within our congregations, communities, governing bodies, networked partnerships, relationships and beyond. When love becomes the lens through which we see the world, justice is possible.

One Example of Neighbors In Need making a difference in the world:

Hope Station Nogales to provide reverse sanctuary to deportees in Mexico

A United Church of Christ sanctuary church offering immigrants refuge in the Arizona borderlands will soon be offering a place of hospitality, support and hope on the Mexican side of the border for people who find themselves deported from the United States. The Shadow Rock UCC Sanctuary Action Team and the Rev. Ken Heintzelman, in an extension of the spirit and intent of their ministry of sanctuary in Phoenix, are in the process of establishing Hope Station Nogales, in Sonora, Mexico.

The thought is Hope Station, which was funded in part by a $10,000 grant from Neighbors in Need, can be a place of transition, a place where people who are deported but have family in the U.S. can find a meal, safe lodging and assistance.
