Welcoming refugees and immigrants to find community in Dayton

New land, new roots. We enrich each other as we share in strength, laughter, hospitality, and friendship at the community gardens.  After planting and watering, we join at the table where we grow closer over some of the deepest stories told.

Preparations for a new school or job can be daunting. Families seeking support and looking for new opportunities are served through weekly educational programs, extracurricular activities, job training,and career counseling.

We walk together with the families through all seasons of life: from celebrating graduations, job offers, weddings, and new beginnings to standing by times of trials, confusion, and challenges of life.  We cherish the relationships built on time, love, and trust.

Local leaders, businesses, churches, and organizations have partnered to build up the neighborhood, its homes, and community spaces.  Everyone who comes with skilled hands and willing hearts revitalizes the community and makes a lasting impact.



No Longer Strangers welcomes refugees and immigrants living in the Dayton neighborhoods through Christ-centered programs and services that promote spiritual, educational, physical and emotional growth.  




Our volunteers are essential to building relationships and effecting change in the community.  Connect and find out more about different ways to get involved.
