Community of Welcome

Members of the Community of Welcome program share their hearts by assisting refugees as they resettle into the rhythms of being San Antonians. Together, we'll build relationships and utilize local resource networks to help our new neighbors adjust to their new home. Community of Welcome participants work in partner groups to welcome our new neighbors by providing a broad based foundation.
