Welcome!  We are excited for the opportunity to partner with United States Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) and The Green Chair Project to help resettle refugees from around the world here in Raleigh-Durham!

Refugee Resettlement Ministry  is a community partnership between USCRI and various groups and organizations in Raleigh and the Research Triangle region of North Carolina.  Welcome Home volunteers are called Community Sponsors and are critical to ensuring a positive arrival for new refugees.  By setting up a home for refugee families, together we offer an opportunity for the family to become self-sufficient in the first 3 months of arriving in their new community.  Refugee Resettlement Program is an engaging and deeply rewarding project for groups looking to make a difference in the lives of newly arrived refugees.
