Become a sponsor

Sponsorship is the ultimate act of welcome— and anyone can do it. In the past year, countless ordinary Americans have risen to the occasion, serving as a lifeline for families in search of safety and a fresh start in the United States. Sponsors assume the roles of mentors, neighbors, companions, and advocates for newly arrived families as they strive to rebuild their lives in the U.S. Learn more about sponsorship and if it is right for you.
