Ways to Serve
Partner with a newly-arrived individual or family to offer friendship and English language practice! With social distancing measures in place, it is more important than ever to support new arrivals as they get to know our community. Meetings currently take place weekly over virtual platforms between partners. Meeting times are flexible according to client and volunteer schedule. Requirements: orientation and background check, minimum three month commitment.
Welcome Teams are groups of individuals that set up homes for new refugee arrivals. Groups can commit to collecting the household and furniture items themselves for the set up, OR commit to simply meeting at the apartment on the scheduled delivery day to set up the delivered items. Help us turn empty spaces into welcoming homes! Availability of Welcome Team opportunities fluctuates due to number of arrivals at any given time. Requirements: orientation and completion of required volunteer paperwork, time commitment varies based on each team's capacity.
