Our Mission

Our Mission

“In response to the compassionate and welcoming love of Jesus, DASH Network exists to love people who are seeking asylum by serving their physical and relational needs.”

Our Vision

To see the Church flourish as it unites to ensure every individual seeking asylum is met with Christ’s love through hospitality, friendship and support on their journey toward safety and freedom.

Note on Reciprocity:

In all that we do, DASH Network aims to foster reciprocal relationships. Even though our residents are unable to work and provide for their physical needs, they contribute to DASH in many valuable ways through their cultures, wisdom, and skills; our heart is to walk alongside our residents as partners and co-creators of DASH. Additionally, we have found that being in a relationship with our residents also improves our staff and volunteers’ relationships with others, self, the world, and God. We consider ourselves highly blessed to get to work alongside such beautiful and culturally diverse people.
