Join us in keeping alive a 40-year tradition of welcome in Greensboro


Be a resource. Be an advocate.

Be a friend.



Volunteers are vital for helping refugees rebuild their lives in the United States.

You can help welcome refugees and immigrants to our community by joining a Match Team, providing English tutoring, working at our legal services office, and more!

We want your experience to be meaningful for everyone!
