Who We Are
Welcome.US is a national initiative built to inspire, mobilize, and empower Americans from all corners of the country to welcome and support those seeking refuge here.
Launched in response to the extraordinary challenge of resettling first our Afghan allies after the fall of Kabul in 2021, and then Ukrainian newcomers displaced by war, Welcome.US mobilizes Americans to help resettle newcomers seeking safety in the U.S.
Our mission is to unleash the desire and capacity of people across America to build a bridge to safety for people seeking refuge in the United States and help them thrive.
Four former Presidents and four former First Ladies have joined us as partners in this effort, bringing Americans together in the common purpose of offering safety to those in need of refuge from war, violence, and persecution.
