Recently visited this organization. Was horrified to see the hatred, racism, and islamaphobic attitudes the staff had towards the people they served. As a practitioner of refugee resettlement, the same attacks towards refugees and muslims I hear from the alt-right were advertised in the literature the director shared with us. For example, she told us in her view "a muslim at his best is no better than Bin Laden". Even more disappointing was to see her treat people this way in the name of the church. As a Christian who helps the Church walk alongside our Muslim brothers and sisters, this hatred has no place in our work and service. God is not present in this organization's work.
Angel House is a caring, Christ centered outreach to the immigrant Muslim community. They are knowledgable about the Islamic community locally and worldwide, how to serve amongst the least of these, have integrity and commitment of over 2 decades, with respect and connections within the community.
