About

After fleeing persecution and hardship, refugees arrive in America having left nearly everything behind. As they start their lives over, one of their most basic needs is help setting up a new home.

Through the Welcome to America! Pack program, you can provide a warm welcome for one of these courageous families when they arrive in our community. You can turn an empty apartment into a home by collecting and delivering all of the basic household items needed for the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen and a first month's supply of food staples. You will meet your refugee family the day they arrive, often with only a few possessions, and personally welcome them with the essential supplies they need.
