Welcome the Stranger: Supporting Refugees through Sponsorship

August 1 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us for a webinar alongside Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), the oldest refugee agency in the U.S., to learn how faith communities and people of faith can become sponsor groups and support refugees in building new lives in the U.S. Participants will learn about private sponsorship through Welcome Corps with HIAS. This program enables groups of 5-8 everyday Americans to form private sponsor groups with the goal of welcoming refugees and helping them become self-sufficient over a six-month period. The group supports the refugees by securing housing, greeting them at the airport, enrolling children in school, helping adults find employment, and learning to navigate life on their own.

Discover how your faith community can provide a sense of welcome and inclusion to refugee families, embracing them as valued members of our society. This webinar will empower you with the tools you need to become a sponsor group and support refugees in building new lives in the U.S.
