We are continuing our support for Ukrainian friends 

First Church continues to support Ukrainian friends who are settling in San Diego. Safe Harbors Network, our sister Methodist organization, vetted a 3-bedroom house in 92105 neighborhood and made it a home for 5 Ukrainian individuals. In collaboration with the International Rescue Committee, First Church plans to assist in the areas that are not covered by the government aid with an intention to help them become self-sufficient in the days to come.    


If you would like to volunteer in the following areas, please send an email to   and let us know of your availability and interest. Your email will be directed to the area coordinators.  Food: taking our guests to grocery shopping and/or to food pantries. First Church will provide financial assistance until CalFresh and other benefits are granted.
