    We open our doors at Tifereth every Wednesday night from 6-8pm to refugees seeking assistance, support, and advocacy.  Many of the problems we help solve are everyday issues relating to health, education, and housing.  Please consider stopping in Wednesday nights to volunteer, or just see for yourself the good work being done! Please contact Rob Kupitz for more information or to volunteer.
