We Are a Nation of Immigrants
We are a sponsor of this "A Portrait of America Project" which is having a fundraiser to support its travelling art exhibit. This extraordinary public art exhibit features larger-than-life portraits of local immigrants, hung on the churches of the historic New Haven Green and surrounding areas. Three portraits have been installed on the exterior of our Meeting House. There will be a public opening for the project outside on the Green on June 8th. The images spotlight common humanity, by featuring immigrants of diverse backgrounds on the New Haven Green to be seen, valued and appreciated. Some are recent citizens, others are longtime residents. Some documented immigrants, some undocumented. Regardless of the journey that brought them to New Haven, these courageous men and women continue to form the heart of our welcoming city and to define our country. We all have a responsibility to do what we can to help uplift their voices. CLICK HERE for more information.

Haven Green for this exciting new program each morning at 9 a.m. and picking
them up at 3 p.m., provide lodging, dinner and breakfast and a family
atmosphere. Stipends of $400 per student for the week will be given to the host

interested in participating. Some thoughts on what you can do as a host family:
- Expose the students to the American way of family life, such as
food preparation, laundry, cleaning, furniture, home style, family
- Have the students tour the local community, go shopping, go to the
coast, visit a state park nearby, etc.
- Read: the Bible, poetry, good literature, newspapers and magazines
- Share life stories.
- Listen to American music, watch American TV, play American games
or sports, etc.
- Invite the students to introduce themselves, their families, and
- Invite the students to tell stories.
- Simply interact with the students, and give them opportunity to
practice their English.
