Here is how you can get involved.
It takes courage to be the first person to open the door — figuratively or literally — to strangers. That's why we need welcomers. Welcomers like you.
Send a warm welcome. We've created a friendly template letter that you can share with a newly resettled refugee to say hello and give them someone to reach out to. Just download it here, print it out, sign and mail it to a local resettlement organization near you.
We've created toolkits that make it easy to host a 20 minute tea talk or an action dinner with toolkits we've created. Want to do more? Rally your own community and host an event with and for refugees. Whether it's inviting them to dance, play a game of soccer, make music or dinner, you're ready to take things into your own hands. (see below for how)
Co-host a supper with recently resettled refugees. We're working with partner organizations to match interested hosts with recently resettled refugees now through September. Sign up to break bread and build connections.
Open your home to a refugee family in need of temporary or short-term. Finding a home is one of the most important and challenging things for newly arrived refugees and a temporary place can be hugely helpful to them. You can sign up here to offer a room or extra home for refugees in need.
Kindness isn't just something that happens in a void, being human is a collective trait. We believe that there are places in our world that are filled with kindness. This fall we will recognize the most welcoming towns in the world.
