Welcoming the Stranger

Working with Global Communities, Locally

Ways to Get Involved

Support Glocal

Glocal Community Partners is a non-profit ministry of Cole Community Church whose mission is to mobilize, train and connect volunteers with our New American neighbors in friendship. We have found that these friendships are not only an important to the process of the healing and the integration, but the are they enrich the lives of those who have the privilege of getting involved.

About Glocal

The local world of Boise is now made up of a global community of more than 15,000 people who have come as refugees within the last two decades. Our New American neighbors have come from all over the world and bring with them a tremendous diversity of cultures, language and religions, but who share the common journey of persecution, escape and survival. They are people who cannot go home or are afraid to go home because of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality or particular social group.
