We are proud to house multiple organizations whose missions complement and extend the ministry of our church.
Brazilian Baptist Church
Igreja Brasileira (the Brazilian Baptist Church) has worshiped at Metro since 1987. For more information on the church, email Raquel Cappeloza.
Damayan Migrant Workers
Damayan Migrant Workers Association, Inc. has its Manhattan office on the 3rd Floor of our smaller building. Damayan is an independent non-profit grassroots organization based in New York and New Jersey that upholds and promotes the rights and welfare of Filipino migrant workers. It also raises awareness and organizes around issues of migrant workers, particularly domestic workers, to understand the root causes of these issues. Damayan is a Filipino word that means "helping each other."
Early Childhood Education
Since the mid-1980s the Second Floor of our main building has been the weekday home to an early childhood education program for neighborhood families. The program is currently directed by Hudson Guild, which seeks to "offer children a nurturing and caring atmosphere that fosters trust and self-esteem, while building confidence in each child’s individual abilities."
Dr. John Halbrook, Metro’s very first pastor in 1974, now provides private counseling services out of Metro’s building.
