The organization Yezidis International seeks to empower the Yezidi community in Lincoln and to help its members preserve their faith and identity. In 2016 a partnership was established between St. Matthew’s and Yezidis International. The partnership has created four projects so far, supported by a grant from the Diocese of Nebraska.
