No need to travel abroad to serve, join us instead for our very first At Home Humanitarian Welcome Weekend! Welcome Weekend is a community retreat held to build support for refugee, immigrant, and asylee families and individuals. Welcome Weekend will take place in San Gregorio, California, the second to last weekend in October.
Cost for New Community Members (refugees, asylees, or newly-arrived immigrants) is FREE. Please let us know if transportation is needed. Adults, youth, and children, all welcome! Referral from another resettlement organization is required to be considered (ie Catholic Charities, IRC, etc.).
Cost for Welcoming Community Members (longtime U.S. residents) will be $300, which will help cover sleeping cabins, meals and snacks, and activities, for all attendees. Payment requests will be sent after applications have been approved. Adults, youth, and children, all welcome! Spots are limited, so please apply asap. Selected Welcoming Community Members will be notified by September 1, 2018, at the latest. Find out more below!
