Your support helps us make new friends and alliances:
- New arrivals and leaders helping them to find their way
- Majority immigrant churches
- People who have yet to take interest in our traditional story but DO care about immigration and want to engage with others, meet new people, and learn
- Community leaders who like what they see in this inclusive effort
Our work remains rooted in the Anabaptist/Mennonite faith.
Nevertheless, we are sharing our stories in new ways to greater numbers of people.

The number of people we impact continues to grow, Along with increased museum attendance, we have over 3000 monthly active users of this website and over 1500 Facebook followers.
Your gift will help us engage people of all ages in the 18th century story, while also reaching out to more recent arrivals, and, in the process, foster informed, civil discourse on the challenges facing immigrants and the nations that receive them.
