Refugees thrive when their communities welcome them and are involved in their integration. 

Welcome a Refugee Through Community Sponsorship

You can welcome a refugee to your community through community sponsorship. As a community sponsor, you can partner with your local resettlement agency to greet a refugee family at their airport, assist them in securing and furnishing initial housing, connect them with local services, and show them all of the things that make your community so special! Contact us at info@rcusa.org and we'll tell you about the community sponsorship opportunities nearest you.

Volunteer With a local resettlement agency

Local resettlement agencies have volunteer opportunities ranging from front desk help support to English language instruction. Check out some of the opportunities on our partner agencies' sites or contact us at info@rcusa.org and we'll help to connect you.
