Welcome Immigrants to Your Community


Our extensive volunteer corps creates a welcoming community that honors immigrants as fellow human beings. Volunteers welcome our clients, and help connect them to the local community.

We rely heavily on volunteers to help us with important activities such as:

  • Welcoming people to our clinics and helping them fill out paperwork

  • Translation

  • Answering and returning phone calls

  • Routine office assistance (filing, copying, mailing)

  • Helping to organize events at churches, schools, universities and other locations

Our volunteer needs vary based on location. Please choose the location that would be closest to you so that you can contact them about your interest.
