Our Mission Statement
The Welcome to America Project is a nonprofit organization that creates community connections and builds bridges of neighborly understanding by providing furniture, basic necessities, education, and additional resources to newly arriving refugees.
We offer a simple welcoming gesture, but it is one that lasts a lifetime.

Read About This Week's Families
The first family we will visit is from Somalia. There are two parents and eight children ranging in age from five to seventeen years old. The family spent nine years in Kenya before they travelled to the United States. Their journey was a long one that included two stops in New York and one stop in Connecticut before they came to Arizona. The whole family was happy to finally arrive in Arizona in the beginning of October. All of the children are in school and they enjoy learning English. The father’s sister has been visiting the family, which has helped them to settle in to their new home.
