What We Do

Hope Dwells is a nonprofit that seeks to love God by connecting with refugees in Benson and surrounding neighborhoods, and partnering with them as they work toward becoming independent homeowners. In essence, this looks like refurnishing refugee homes once they move out of infested, substandard apartments, educating refugee families on cleaning, winter/snow upkeep, home maintenance and financial planning, and sponsoring and upkeeping a neighborhood community garden with the goal of bringing a diverse community together. We are passionate about developing refugees' skills to help them succeed as independent homeowners in our city as a way to set their families up for success for generations to come!
