What is Community of Welcome?

Partners of Community of Welcome share their hearts by assisting refugees as they resettle into the rhythms of being San Antonians. Together, we build relationships and utilize local resource networks to help our new neighbors adjust to their new homes. Community of Welcome works as a partner group to welcome our new neighbors by providing a broad-based foundation. 

Interested in getting involved? We welcome you to watch our Community of Welcome information session where you will learn more about our program.
