Welcome.US | One Year Of Welcoming

Our First Year of Welcome

Celebrating a Nation of Welcomers

Welcome.US

Welcome.US is reimagining refugee resettlement as a whole-country effort. This past year has proven that when we open up the resettlement system and invite the participation of every part of America – from corporations to civic organizations to everyday people – we tap into the best of America, and a reservoir of welcome that far expands what government systems can do on their own. As increasing conflict, climate change, violence, and oppression drive ever more people to flee their homes, we envision an America that gives people in need of refuge access to safety, security, and the chance to rebuild their lives and achieve their human potential.

“We’ve been deeply inspired by the desire of Americans –  from every corner and every sector of the country – to help. Through these acts of welcome, Americans have been finding themselves, finding each other, and finding again the country and community they believe in – a nation that welcomes, that provides safety and refuge, that helps strivers – as all newcomers are – become new Americans.”
- Nazanin Ash, Welcome.US CEO

How It Started

Welcome.US was created in response to an extraordinary challenge: resettling close to 100,000 Afghan allies fleeing Taliban-controlled Afghanistan with a government system that had welcomed just over 11,000 refugees the year before. A mere six months later, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine drove millions of Ukrainians to flee their homes. We needed to build a system that could not only meet the specific challenges brought on by these crises, but one with durable capacity and the resilience to meet the next moment of crisis that we know will inevitably come. We needed a whole-of-society response; a truly American effort. 



Welcome.US is the story of how the American people rose to meet an unprecedented challenge: this is what we’ve built together over the last 365 days.

Innovating Solutions with the Private Sector

As the private sector partner of the U.S. government, Welcome.US created diverse points of entry for corporate engagement. Our CEO Council brings together nearly 40 of the country’s most iconic companies to innovate new solutions to meet the tangible needs of newcomers at scale – modernizing the resettlement system to grow capacity. These efforts have yielded millions of dollars worth of donated goods and services, but are also vastly expanding systems for newcomer employment, providing household supplies, accessing legal services, and sponsorship. 


Private sector partners are also helping to grow participation in welcoming by sharing calls to action with employees and consumers. Employees of participating corporations are also invited to become Welcomers, as volunteers at legal clinics, hiring fairs, or community-based organizations focused on local resettlement; or by helping to raise awareness about the work of Welcome.US and sponsorship. The combined workforce of CEO Council member organizations constitutes millions of employees who have the potential of being Welcomers in their local communities: they are a crucial component of the welcome movement.

“Connectivity is at the heart of T-Mobile’s business – and increasingly, essential to virtually all aspects of modern life. For those who have left everything due to conflicts in Afghanistan and Ukraine, we know that connectivity is an especially critical lifeline to help them establish their lives here in the U.S.

 That’s why I’m excited about T-Mobile’s partnership with Welcome.US. Together we’re helping newcomers stay connected through free service plans and devices, while also providing access to networking and employment opportunities to help our new neighbors thrive.” – Mike Sievert, T-Mobile CEO

Stories of Welcome – Innovating for Impact

With visionary leadership from the CEOs of Google and Accenture, the Welcome.US CEO Council has created diverse points of entry for corporate engagement in the work of resettlement. Leveraging their unique areas of expertise, and activating both their employees and consumers as Welcomers, the CEO Council is a cornerstone of the growing welcome movement.

Bringing Communities into the Resettlement System

This year, Welcome.US partnered with the U.S. government to help relieve pressure on the traditional resettlement system – which consists of just nine heroic refugee resettlement agencies – by allowing everyday people to assume responsibility for a newly-arrived family in their community. Americans seized that opportunity: over 800 Afghans were directly sponsored by everyday Americans in groups of five or more through the Sponsor Circles program and by iconic service organizations like Samaritan’s Purse, Islamic Relief USA, Lions Club, and others who mobilized their memberships to support newcomers. 


The success of those efforts later served as the blueprint for the Uniting for Ukraine program, which allows Americans to directly sponsor Ukrainians displaced by the Russian invasion and makes it possible for them to find safety and refuge in the United States. Now, six months since the launch of that program Americans signed up to sponsor more refugees than the U.S. government has admitted in the last five fiscal years combined.

“So if someone else wanted to do this, I would say 110%, go for it. Knowing that you’re helping someone really build a life.” - Sonya, Cleveland, OH

“We are proud to partner with Welcome.US to help 100,000 displaced Ukrainians seek safe haven in the United States, and we will continue to support the Ukrainian people in their hour of need.” – David Soloman, Chairman & CEO, Goldman Sachs

Stories of Welcome – Connections Change Lives

Welcome.US and its partners have played essential roles in developing the innovations and architecture to support Americans to sponsor Afghan and Ukrainian newcomers. By inviting everyday people to participate, we dramatically expanded our capacity for welcome and helped provide the sense of belonging so critical to the success of our new neighbors. With the leadership of Goldman Sachs, we have rapidly accelerated the opportunity for Americans to serve as sponsors.

The Welcome Movement

Over the course of this year, we’ve not only added much-needed capacity to our existing systems – we’ve started building a more engaged, more politically and geographically diverse, and more durable movement of welcome in America. It’s a movement that transcends real or perceived political, religious, geographic, ethnic or other divides. Our call to action has resonated with Americans everywhere, in every community, of every background, because it encompasses what Americans are already doing every day: being good neighbors. Helping those in need. Serving our communities. Civic organizations as diverse as Lions Clubs International, Samaritan's Purse, Islamic Relief USA, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, veteran-led Team Rubicon, refugee-led Viets for Afghans, and hundreds of community organizations have all become new players in the work of welcome.

“I helped build the chairs, and I also gave them my bike. It makes me feel good to help other families and know I’m doing it for a good reason and a good cause. So it feels like I’m actually part of something very, very big.” – Julian, 12-year-old Welcomer

And I think that, to me, was just the heart of it, the core of it: how can we share this love, this sense of home, the sense of community with a family that is suffering such deep trauma?” – Max, Julian’s father

Communities of Welcomers

Together, we have built the largest, most diverse coalition of people and organizations engaged in resettlement work in American history.

Veteran Community
Veteran Community

Veterans were some of the first to step up as Welcomers for our Afghan allies, organizing to quickly respond to initial resettlement needs and providing ongoing support to welcome newcomers from Afghanistan as well as Ukraine. Their unique skills and commitment to these communities have created deep relationships and effective organizations nationwide.

Faith Communities
Faith Communities

Congregations and members of faith groups have long offered a helping hand to those in need, and when the need for welcome was greatest following the fall of Kabul and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, new faith networks rallied their memberships to help. From national faith organizations to individual congregations and families, a diverse and growing community is providing refuge to newcomers in crisis.

Diaspora Organizations
Diaspora Organizations

Diaspora organizations have been a central force in providing welcome over the past year. In fact, 67% of Welcome Fund grantees are Afghan American, Muslim, veteran, or refugee-led organizations. And 27 Ukrainian American organizations have partnered with Welcome.US to raise awareness on Uniting for Ukraine and sponsorship.

Nonprofits and Community Organizations
Nonprofits and Community Organizations

Together, this inspiring coalition of national and local nonprofits and community organizations has served tens of thousands of people in hundreds of communities across the country. Whether by resettling newcomers, meeting basic needs, advocating for human rights, lifting up diaspora communities, or serving veterans, all of these groups are stepping up and leading as Welcomers at this critical moment.

Corporate America
Corporate America

As the private sector partner of the U.S. government, Welcome.US created diverse points of entry for corporate engagement. Businesses and their leaders, including those on the Welcome.US CEO Council, bring a range of resources – expertise, talent, technology, and financial investments – to the table. Welcome.US and its corporate partners have brought new innovations to meet the needs of newcomers at scale–and to engage employees and consumers in the work of welcoming.  

Local and State Governments
Local and State Governments

States and cities across the country have opened their communities to Afghan and Ukrainian newcomers. Red States and Blue States are places of welcome – as committed state and local leaders across the political spectrum put forth policies and dedicate resources to welcome newcomers–knowing how newcomers revitalize their communities and economies.

Our First Year of Welcome: Celebrating a Nation of Welcomers

When Kabul fell and nearly 80,000 Afghans began arriving in the United States, it was clear that our heroic refugee resettlement system – which had resettled just 11,840 refugees the previous year – would quickly become overwhelmed. It also presented an opportunity to do more than just support our Afghan allies, it gave us an ever more pressing reason to modernize our resettlement system – and build enduring new capacity – by creating new pathways for everyday Americans to offer welcome to newcomers. 


So for the first time in over four decades, we reimagined refugee resettlement not just as a government process but as a community effort – a whole-of-society response that tapped deeply into the strength of America’s private sector, civil society, and people.  


We issued a call to action and the American people and our institutions responded. The refugee resettlement community, Afghan American and Ukrainian American communities, top CEOs across the country, leaders from nonprofits and faith-based institutions, government actors across local, state and national levels, former U.S. presidents and first ladies, and thousands of regular Americans worked together to create a culture of welcome and support for newcomers to the United States. Everywhere we turned, Americans overwhelmingly said “yes.” And their “yes” holds immense power. 


The results of this experiment have been extraordinary, and they reveal so much about who we, as a nation, are willing to be in the world. Americans met arriving newcomers at airports and military safe havens, with our nation’s veterans at the center of the initial response.  Major airlines, travel industry leaders and the American people united around an airline miles challenge to secure donated flights for Afghan evacuees. Americans are opening their homes to newcomers thanks to housing innovators who made it possible; businesses are building new mechanisms to identify and meet the practical needs of newcomers; colleges and universities are providing language training, scholarships, and admission. A new Welcome Employment Exchange connects newcomers to available jobs; and new policy innovations and a new Welcome Connect platform enable Americans to sponsor thousands of Ukrainians seeking refuge in the United States. This is just the beginning and the innovations continue, drawing on the creativity, talent, and entrepreneurial spirit of the American people.


While the Welcome.US team spent its first year responding to twin crises – the fall of Kabul and the invasion of Ukraine – we also built a  community-centered model for refugee and newcomer integration that is more than simply a response to this moment. It’s a pathway to better meeting the challenge of global displacement – a crisis that now affects 100 million people worldwide, living their lives in limbo, without safety, security, and the opportunity to rebuild their lives and make their contributions. And it’s a pathway to strengthening our culture of welcome. Together, we are honoring our history by offering hope and being a place of refuge for people fleeing violence, oppression, and persecution. And we are rediscovering who we are as Americans: A nation of Welcomers. 


This first year has given us a proof of concept: the American people, the private sector, civic institutions, diverse community organizations, and government actors can work together to offer refuge – lifelines – at scale. From here, we can expand our resettlement system in a way that is durable and resilient – making sure that as a nation, we have both the capacity and the commitment to welcome many more. 


Our organization harnesses the enduring willingness of Americans across politics, faiths, races, ethnicities and other real or perceived differences to offer their hands and hearts to strengthen their communities and help their new neighbors. In just one year, our work revealed a beautiful truth about our people, communities and nation: We are Welcomers. We say yes. And we will say it again and again in the years to come. Join us.



-Nazanin Ash, John Bridgeland, Anya McMurray and Cecilia Muñoz
