Today’s Front Line Hero is Seafarers International House, which is providing comfort and hope to shipping crews impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Seafarers International House, based in New York City, is dedicated to helping immigrants and refugees avoid homelessness and become settled in the United States. Additionally, Seafarers International House also provides assistance, such as Wi-Fi access and medical assistance, to ship crews stuck in port.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, shipping barge workers have not been able to leave their boats or receive crew rotations. In order to make their time at sea more comfortable, Seafarers International House sends its Port Chaplains to visit with the crew, offer spiritual guidance and provide much-needed comfort during these difficult times.

Thank you to Seafarers International House for the support you provide!
