Who We Are

For the Nations DC is a nonprofit ministry serving English language learners and their children in the Washington, DC area.

We teach English to adults four days per week with free child care for children ages 0 to 5 years old. Offering four days of classes helps students learn more quickly, and our relationships grow deeper. We also help families adjust to life in the US. We unashamedly proclaim the gospel as the only hope of healing for the brokenness we all experience.

Our Mission

To provide English-language instruction and other educational services that help meet the practical needs of refugees, asylees and immigrants, and to share with them the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Our Goals

  • Love our new neighbors as we have been loved
  • Teach English to adults 
  • Teach life skills to children and adults
  • Connect our new neighbors to the community
  • Share with everyone the gospel of hope
