Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Emma Lazarus

Hearts and Homes for Refugees is a nonprofit grassroots humanitarian organization that works with U.S. State Department-designated agencies to welcome, assist and advocate for refugees. We are a growing network of volunteers — families, neighbors, community organizations, and people of goodwill from all faith and civic groups — committed to offering refugees hope and opportunity. In keeping with time-honored American tradition, we offer refuge to those fleeing violence and persecution and identify and tap resources that aid refugee populations. We use our expertise and experience to educate, inspire and equip others to welcome the stranger.

HHR is an apolitical initiative that welcomes concerned individuals from every religious, faith-based and civic background and does not represent any specific faith or community group except its own.
