Welcoming refugees through community sponsorshipLearn More
Join our community of sponsors and resettlement practitioners welcoming refugee families through community sponsorship.
We provide in-depth training programs, weekly learning sessions, resources, and on-demand technical assistance for sponsors, community sponsorship staff, refugees paired with sponsors, and community and institutional partners to improve outcomes for refugees resettled through the U.S. Refugee Admissions program.
Our current journey has been one of learning and of collaboration with new partners. I am grateful that our church's leadership catalyzed a community-wide effort blessing six Afghan families and the Columbus congregations co-sponsoring them.Rev. Dr. Felipe N. Martinez, First Presbyterian Church (Columbus, IN)
