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.
The Welcome to America Project hosts events throughout the year to celebrate refugees and educate the public. Join us at one of our upcoming events to learn more about the refugees that we serve.
