Ahlan wa-Sahlan Refugee Fundraiser
Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) is one of six community groups co-sponsoring two refugee families in our neighborhood. The collaborative effort is called the Hyde Park Refugee Project. Ahlan wa-Sahlan means "Welcome" or "Making Room" in Arabic. Come for a plated Syrian meal, learn more about refugee support from RefugeeOne, interfaith relations from LSTC, and more! Funds for this event will directly support RefugeeOne (Chicago's largest resettlement agency) and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) Housing - for expediting apartment readiness and providing reduced rent for the families.
