365 days, tens of thousands of lives changed

Join us in celebrating a remarkable year of compassion, innovation, and community. We all deserve a safe and welcoming place to call home. The Welcome Corps has redefined what it means to extend a hand of welcome to those seeking refuge in the United States.

This groundbreaking initiative through the U.S. Department of State has brought private sponsor groups and American communities together in an extraordinary partnership. We've witnessed the incredible power of matching sponsors and connecting communities with refugees from around the world. And, in December 2023, the program expanded to allow Americans to apply to sponsor refugees they know. In just one year, more than 15,000 sponsors have volunteered to support more than 7,000 refugees as they become our new neighbors in communities across the United States.

The best way to help us mark this incredible milestone is to join us in our mission. Let's continue to uplift the Welcome Corps, a beacon of hope and change, as we work together to create brighter futures for those who seek safety and freedom in the United States.
