Mentoring and Sponsorship
Support a refugee family by meeting together monthly or bi-monthly, introducing them to life in America, engaging in conversations that improve their English or assisting their study toward citizenship.
Bringing People Together
Form new and lasting friendships. Gather for monthly luncheons. Meet neighbors, refugees from across the world and hear speakers address issues relevant to today’s refugees.
Giving Families a Head Start
Together with a refugee family create a new living space through: donating clothing and furniture, assisting with rent, groceries and basic necessities, preparing a welcome box, sharing cultural values, and meals.
