As more refugees resettle in Chicagoland, you can provide practical help and hospitality to refugee newcomers.
Refugees are forced to flee their country due to war or persecution. When they arrive here, refugees only have what they can carry. Starting over is daunting.
You can make a difference for a newly arriving refugee family with a Welcome to America! Pack. (See the list here.) Turn an empty apartment into a home by collecting household essentials, then delivering them to a refugee family on the day they arrive in the U.S. You’ll set up their apartment and provide a warm greeting.
This is a great project for a congregation, family, or a small group from a church, workplace, or community! Your Exodus Team will help you every step of the way by providing resources and support, then introducing you to a refugee family.
