Take Action

Helping resettle refugees is a tangible way citizens of this country can translate into action their concern for those who have fled war-ravaged situations.

The most basic outreach you provide to refugees will mean a lot. This can include:

  • Meeting them at the airport
  • Assisting them with initial housing, food and clothing
  • Helping to furnish their new home
  • Introducing them to American culture
  • Orienting them to their new environment
  • Connecting them to job placement services

 

How can I co-sponsor a refugee?

Co-sponsors are volunteers who work together with our affiliate offices, which are responsible for resettling refugees. The more volunteer and financial assistance our affiliate offices receive, the more refugees they can help.

Taking on co-sponsorship is a moral commitment to help refugees achieve self-sufficiency and become contributing members of their new communities. In addition to financial support, personal engagement and in-kind contributions go a long way towards meeting refugees’ needs.

When hope and friendship are extended through co-sponsorship, refugees benefit tremendously. Sponsorship begins by reaching an Episcopal Migration Ministries affiliate office.

If you are in an area with no local affiliate, contact our national office for information about how you can help refugees.
