Become a Circle of Welcome Team

The Circle of Welcome is a good fit for any community group – church, mosque, school or other association – that wants to partner directly with a refugee family new to the United States. The goal of the Circle of Welcome is to help newly-arrived families gain self-sufficiency and to increase social integration.

This service offers a meaningful way for community groups to engage with their new neighbors as friends and advocates. The Circle of Welcome mentor team works directly with families to provide information about U.S. life skills and cultural exchange, and to provide emotional support for one year. Circle of Welcome groups also contribute a financial gift that goes directly to welcoming refugee families.
