About

We are seeking dedicated volunteers to help in the resettlement process of refugees coming to Lincoln. Refugees often come here with all of their belongings in just a few bags and with no knowledge or resources about their new home or community. You can be their resource!

Volunteers are needed to provide a variety of services to these individuals. Volunteer responsibilities can range from setting-up their apartment before arrival, welcoming refugees as they get off the plane, and helping tutor them in the English language.

You can help them apply for social security cards and state IDs for employment purposes, help them find employment and transport them to medical appointments and job interviews. Be an advocate for their independence!

Requirements: Potential volunteers must pass a criminal background screen and DMV check. Volunteers must be available anytime during business hours of 9:00am-5:00pm on weekdays. Ability to commit to mentor for 3 months preferred.
