Ambassadors of Welcome
Community. Partnership. Friendship.
Welcome newly arrived refugees to Greensboro through community sponsorship. As a community sponsor, your group of 7-10 becomes a partner with CWS Greensboro to greet a refugee family at the airport, assist them in securing and furnishing initial housing, connect them with local services, and show them all of the things that make our community so special!
Sponsorship is offering a hand up. It is not total responsibility for our immigrant neighbors.
Sponsors form teams and each team member backs up the others, offering their own time, talent, and energy, however much or little it may be. What might be daunting alone, sponsors have the strength of each other.
