Welcoming America is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that is proud to support the many diverse communities and partners who are leading efforts to make their communities more vibrant places for all. 

We lead a growing movement of communities becoming more prosperous by helping everyone be able to fully participate in economic, social, and civic opportunities. Reducing barriers to participation for immigrants and refugees means barriers are reduced for all residents – welcoming helps everyone thrive. 

Through a cooperative agreement with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Welcoming America’s Welcoming Refugees program assists organizations and communities across the country plan ways to help local refugees feel a greater part of their new community and to build understanding among all residents. 

Our trainings and resources include topics like community engagement, refugee leadership, positive communications, and many other areas critical for creating a welcoming community in which everyone can thrive.
