Refugee Support and Resettlement Team

Please help our Welcome Team support newly arrived-refugees! We help Refugee Services of Texas resettle newly-arrived refugees and start their new lives in North Texas.  We furnish and set up their new apartments, stock their pantries, meet them at the airport and escort them to their new homes, where a warm “welcome meal” is waiting. We provide household and personal hygiene supplies, clothing, school supplies, books, toys and other necessities to ease their resettlement and support them in integrating and thriving in their new communities. 

With your help, we can ease the difficult transition for refugee families far from home!

From the story:

About 1,750 boys are now being held at the emergency migrant shelter at the Dallas convention center, and volunteers say they’re doing well and seem to be relieved to be in their care.

“The kids are safe, they are dry and they are fed,” said Dave Woodyard, the CEO of Catholic Charities of Dallas, which is helping organize volunteers. “They are on a path to get reunited or into a permanent shelter and having a much better life ahead of them.”

Most of the teenagers are from Central America, sent to the hastily prepared “decompression center” from overcrowded federal facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border. As many as 2,300 are expected at Dallas’ Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, and it is only one of a handful of shelters being opened to handle the overflow.
