How to Get Involved
There has been great momentum in communities around the country who have wanted to get involved in refugee support in a number of ways.
One way to be a part of the solution to the humanitarian crisis is for an organization to adopt the co-sponsorship model of refugee resettlement. This public-private partnership provides refugees with effective assistance while transitioning to life in America without overburdening government resources. If you are interested in learning more about the co-sponsorship model in your community, you can find more information on Community Co-Sponsorship.
If you are not ready for co-sponsorship, you can volunteer with other refugee support organizations. Go to Community & Partner Organizations.
To learn more, go to Other Ways to Support Refugees, for other opportunities, including how your community can get aid to war torn Syria as winter sets in.
