Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida

  • 15 people are interested
welcome

We need friendly faces to welcome arriving refugees to Jacksonville and help them get to appointments around town during their first days in the U.S. No need to speak a foreign language!

Newly arrived refugees have a lot to do in the first 30 days, including visits to the health department, Social Security, and Department of Motor Vehicles. Imagine trying to do all this while navigating an unfamiliar public transportation system in an unfamiliar city with signage in an unfamiliar language. Welcome drivers help relieve that one stress point during the first 30 days to allow newly arriving refugees to get acclimated.
