A Welcome Team is a group of people who furnish a refugee family’s apartment and stock it with groceries before the family arrives in North Carolina. A Welcome Team can be a congregation, a service club, a neighborhood association, or any type of group that has the capacity and desire to do a service project that benefits newly-arrived refugees.
As a Welcome Team, you have the honor of creating one of the first experiences of hospitality and welcome that a refugee will encounter when they arrive in the Triangle. Not only do Welcome Teams ensure that each refugee finds a safe and furnished place to live when they get to their new community, but they also save critical financial resources for each family and individual.
