Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Hearts and Homes for Refugees (HHR) is a non-profit grassroots humanitarian group in Westchester County, New York. Our mission is to support those U.S. Department of State approved agencies that welcome, protect and advocate for refugees in our communities. We are a growing network of volunteers — families and neighbors, community organizations, and people of goodwill from all faith and civic groups. We offer our talents, time, and expertise to identify and utilize resources that will offer hope and help to refugees, in keeping with the time-honored American practice of welcoming newcomers. We hope to inspire, educate and motivate others to do the same.

Join us to change the outcome for refugees, one family at a time.

HHR is an apolitical initiative that welcomes concerned individuals from every religious, faith-based and civic background and does not represent any specific faith or community group except its own.
