Sponsored by Welcome.US and Tent- Welcome.US is a new national initiative built to inspire, mobilize, and empower Americans from all corners of the country to welcome and support those seeking refuge here. They began with the new Afghan neighbors and have expanded to those fleeing Ukraine while also building a durable capacity and ability to welcome other newcomers. They operate on the evidence that direct participation with newcomers transforms both the welcomer and those being received. Their ultimate ambition is for every American community – and the nation as a whole – to have the resources and willingness to welcome newcomers, now and in the future.  This is the foundation created by Presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Carter to help and welcome refugees worldwide.


-We established a productive relationship with Welcome US. Therefore, with our support, they sponsored a Hire Fair at Hilton Hotel in Tysons Corner in partnership with Tent (a refugee organization created by the founder of Chobani) and Talent Beyond Boundaries.  We had over 500 applicants registered at the event 321 were hired on-site, and over 100 during the second round of interviews for management and higher positions.  

-We were also able to receive a grant in the amount of $50,000 from Welcome.US to support the refugee programs

- We also received a $10,000 Amazon pilot program sponsored by Welcome.US to purchase household items for refugees.
