“Welcome to the U.S.!” Every week, you can hear TIGRA volunteers welcome a newly arrived family. Volunteers come together to call every family in our targeted regions. Our welcome calls orient newcomers, as well as their sponsoring family members about our resources and upcoming local, welcoming activities in their area.
We have proven personally hearing our volunteers reach out starts to build in a newcomer’s new time of adjustment and brings families one step closer towards a successful transition. Volunteers also develop leadership skills through understanding culturally responsive outreach.
If you are interested in Welcoming the next newly arrived family, please contact Leo Esclamado, Project Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-338-4918.
