Secure Shelter, Empower Lives

Dear Beloved Community,

Welcome to the Congolese Integration Network, a beacon of hope for Congolese immigrants and refugees in Seattle. Our community-driven organization is dedicated to fostering the social, economic, cultural, and spiritual integration of immigrants and refugees in Washington state.

Housing is not just a basic necessity; it's a fundamental pillar of health and well-being. Last year, we've seen a sharp rise in the demand for housing among newly arrived refugees. While we've successfully relocated over 50 individuals, the urgent need for safe accommodations, particularly for the most traumatized asylum-seeking women led us to Open a shelter.

Under our compassionate care, all our clients receive wrap-around case management services tailored to their needs. From connecting them with community resources to providing legal assistance, we empower each individual to rebuild their lives with dignity and resilience.

However, we face an urgent challenge. The house we used to shelter our clients has been sold, leaving us in desperate need of alternative housing solutions in 30 days! Your financial contribution can make a profound impact on our ability to continue to provide stable housing and support to those in need.

The impact of your donation: 
- $50 ensures a month's worth of basic necessities for one person
- $100 covers transportation for medial and job-related appointments
- $250 supports an Asylum language education
- $500 month worth of food
- $1,000 funds partial comprehensive case management services for several individuals.

Our immediate fundraising goal is to raise $30,000, which will enable us to look for new place and continue to provide housing for eight asylum-seeking women or more for one year. This amount also covers the cost of a full-time culturally competent case manager, transportation to community events, and more.

Your generosity and partnership are invaluable as we continue our mission of compassion and empowerment. Please consider making a donation and sharing our cause with your network. Together, we can create a future where every member of our community has a place to call home and the opportunity to build a brighter tomorrow. Thank you for your unwavering support.

Together, We Can Secure a Future of Empowerment. Your generosity is a powerful force for change.

With heartfelt appreciation,


Meet Adolphine Teresa, a survivor whose harrowing journey speaks volumes about the atrocities faced by many asylum seekers. Forced to flee her homeland after enduring unimaginable loss and brutality, Adolphine found solace and safety in our shelter. Here, she experiences the warmth of love and the comfort of security, far removed from the dangers of sleeping on the streets or in makeshift tents. With the freedom to cook and enjoy meals, Adolphine finds healing in the simple act of nourishing her body and soul.



Similarly, Florencia Ngunza Mboma's story echoes the struggles of countless women who have endured domestic violence and persecution. Escaping a life of torment and oppression, Florencia found refuge in our shelter, liberated from the chains of abuse and fear. Here, she receives comprehensive support, including, mental health legal assistance to navigate the asylum process and secure a brighter future for herself and her family.
