Welcome Team

Navigating grocery stores, schools, housing applications, and directions, can all be a challenge for a recently resettled Refugee with language and culture barriers. Serve on the Welcome Team and be paired with a Refugee family to support them as they get acclimated to your hometown. Join a team of people passionate about welcoming refugees to the Upstate.
