With the growing instability of Afghanistan, Houston is expected to get hundreds more refugees in the coming months than the entire previous year. Thank you for helping us meet the needs of refugees new to Houston with honor and dignity by donating items to build Kitchen Kit #2 during the WBC Kit Packing Event on October 27, 2021. With the help of our many volunteers, we collected items for and assembled 30 kits! Thank YOU so much for serving alongside us. Houston Welcomes Refugees (HWR) will distribute these kits to refugee families when they first arrive. Your donations will help families that have suffered greatly get a fresh start in life again.
To learn about other ways you can serve refugees arriving in our city, please join Houston Welcomes Refugees for an Orientation. Orientations last about an hour and cover some basic information about the refugee resettlement process, why the organization exists, and how attendees can volunteer.
To RSVP and learn more visit: https://www.houstonwelcomesrefugees.com/orientation.
Once your orientation is completed, please watch for an email invitation from HWR to attend a training session.
