Welcome Home Jersey City

Welcome Home Jersey City


Home to the Statue of Liberty, and one of the most diverse cities in the country, Jersey City, NJ is a community uniquely positioned to welcome people from all over the world.

Established in 2016, Welcome Home Jersey City is an all-volunteer organization devoted to helping newly-arrived refugees and asylees begin their lives in the greater Jersey City area.

By partnering with local government, businesses, and other like-minded, not-for-profit organizations, Welcome Home helps refugees and asylees resettled by Church World Service with the support needed for long-term success in this country.

Some of our services include:

* Cleaning and furnishing apartments for new arrivals
* Teaching ESL classes and providing individual tutoring and support
* Hosting cultural training in conjunction with Church World Service
* Funding summer camp programs
* Organizing an annual back-to-school drive
* Hosting summer and winter clothing distribution
* Providing material support beyond the limits of Church World Service’s refugee resettlement program

We’re always looking for additional volunteers and donors! With your help, we can make a difference!
