We receive some government funds to help a refugee family become independent but there is always a large gap. The HIAS Welcome Campaign will ensure that families are provided with the resources and assistance necessary for a safe and successful transition to the United States. Dollars raised will be used for direct financial assistance, as well as to support program activities and service coordination. This includes:

  • Rent and utility assistance
  • Transportation assistance
  • Other basic needs assistance, including clothing and food
  • Translation and interpretation services
  • Culturally-appropriate case management services to support acclimation and integration
