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.

One of our visits this Saturday will be to a single woman (age 40) who is from Cuba. She left Cuba out of concern for her safety and because of the poor economy. She worked in an ice cream factory for seven years while she was caring for her elderly mother. She has a son (age 21) and a two-year old granddaughter who are still in Cuba. They will be coming to the United States in the future. The woman also has a brother who lives in the Phoenix area. She is taking English classes with the hope that learning English will help her to a job in the future. She likes Phoenix and is happy to be in her new community.
