Welcome Home

Welcome Home - US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants

In this season of joy and giving , we are so grateful to be able to “Welcome Home” another refugee family in January . They are from the Democratic Republic of Congo and are a family of seven. Mom and Dad and five children ages 2 (F), 5 (F), 8 (M), 11(M), 13 (F). 


This sign up includes many ways for your to help including donations, volunteer to sit with the POD and accept donations and finally volunteer to help setup the apartment before the family arrives.  After the family has settled into their new home we will then have many needs to help support them get adjusted. 


We will be needing furniture for a three bedroom apartment which we are hoping will be in North Raleigh.  Please only new or gently used items for donation. A POD will be available for donations in the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church (11401 Leesville Rd., Raleigh, NC 27613) parking lot on 1/12 2-6pm and 1/13 8:30-11:30, 11:30-1:30, and 5-7pm.  Once we have the move-in crew identified we will email you with details on where to meet.  The apartment is off Sandy Forks Rd., if that helps at least with location of town.  

This is a great opportunity for HS students, Girl or Boy Scout Troops to obtain community service hours!  Volunteer signups are listed within.  If you have any questions - feel free to email [email protected]
