About

At the core of No One Left Behind's work is the belief that all combat interpreters who were forced to leave their homes due to being threatened for serving with the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve to be welcomed home to the USA. We are looking to build our team to welcome interpreters to the Rochester area.

Combat interpreters arrive in the US typically with only a single carry on size suitcase. Often, interpreters arrive penniless with little more than the clothes on their backs. Our Operation Welcome Home team focuses on fully furnishing interpreters' homes at no cost to them. We need volunteers who can move furniture into apartments in the Rochester area. There's nothing like showing up to an interpreter's home and knocking on the door - and then asking "Hey, I'm with No One Left Behind - where do you want your couch?" or taking someone to their first apartment in the US, opening the door, and showing them their new apartment in the US.
