How to Get Involved 

There has been great momentum in communities around the country who have wanted to get involved in refugee support in a number of ways.

One way to be a part of the solution to the humanitarian crisis is for an organization to adopt the Co-Sponsor/Host Model to help resettle refugees.  This public-private partnership provides refugees with effective assistance while transitioning to life in America without overburdening government resources. If you are interested in joining a group in your community, or organizing as a co-sponsor or host organization, learn more here: Community Co-Sponsorship.

In this time of uncertainty about the U.S. Refugee Program, and the slowdown in the number of refugees being admitted to the United States in 2018, the Westchester Refugee Initiative offers ideas and connections to activities to keep the welcoming movement alive in the greater NYC area and Westchester County. Now, more than ever, is the time to get involved and to help this grass roots movement continue to actively support those populations served by the refugee program.
