Who we are


Because He First Loved Us is a relational ministry to refugee families to meet spiritual, educational and, practical needs through child and family mentoring and resource networking.

Because He First Loved Us is a relational ministry to refugee families to meet spiritual, educational, and practical needs through family mentoring and resource networking. Our goal is to educate, encourage and influence refugee families as they strive to succeed in their new life here in the Utah. Our approach is more than just providing services or meeting practical needs. We build personal relationships with the children and their families as we live life together. Some of the ways we are making an impact is through our tutoring programs, mentoring programs, sports programs and special events. We provide the kids with positive choice options so they can stay out of gangs and are not being drawn to criminal activity or drugs. We also come along side the parents to help empower and educate them on how to navigate parenting, acquiring jobs, learning the English language, as well as how to support their children in their education. 

Our other main goal is to bring awareness to the community at large of the needs of these precious new friends. We want to inspire and ultimately motivate others into to action. This community belong to each and every one of us. We should all care about one another and want to help each other succeed.

 

Please join us in being a part of the solution!

Mentoring


Mentor a Child or Teen

Be a big brother or big sister to one of our amazing kids. Or just get to know a new friend your own age. The commitment level can vary. It's as simple as making a friend and hanging out :-) Do you like to watch movies, go to the park, play sports or just chill with friends?

Then this is perfect for you!!

Partner With an Adult

Make a new friend from another part of the world. The commitment level can vary. A lot of the adults want to improve their English skills, many of them are working on their citizenship, some are working on a drivers license and some of them just need a friend to walk with them through this new life.

Get involved today, change a life forever!
