The launch of the Welcome.US CEO Council comes amid one of the largest refugee crises of this century, with over 4.2 million Ukrainians fleeing for safety across Europe—a number the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees expects will increase as the conflict continues. The United States recently announced that more than 100,000 Ukrainians will be allowed to seek refuge in the country, which follows more than 75,000 Afghan newcomers already being resettled in American communities—seven times the number of refugees resettled in the United States in 2020.


Building on the collective efforts of resettlement agencies, frontline organizations, faith-based institutions, and Americans across the country, the Welcome.US CEO Council will help marshal resources from the private sector to provide newcomers with access to critical goods and services, quality jobs, and mentorship opportunities. The Welcome.US CEO Council priorities will focus on:

Helping to meet the initial resettlement needs to welcome newcomers into their new communities.
