Good Neighbor Teams
What is a Good Neighbor Team?
A Good Neighbor Team (GNT) is a group of 5 to 10 people from a local church that partners with Hope for San Diego and World Relief SoCal to welcome and walk alongside one refugee family.
Teams work with Hope for San Diego and World Relief to support the refugee family’s initial resettlement or secondary migration.
Our goal is for each refugee that arrives in the San Diego area to feel the warm welcome of the local church and community.
What is the time commitment?
It is a 6-month commitment in which at least one member of the team visits the family at least once per week.
What are the main responsibilities?
Areas of support often include household furnishing collection, apartment set-up, airport welcome, education mentor, ESL practice, health advocate, and job coach. Mainly, it is assisting in assimilating the family supporting them as they navigate their new life here.
Receive the provided training and complete the appropriate application to join the team.
