Refugee Outreach

Refugee Welcome Team Volunteers Needed

When refugees come to Dallas they are often alone and don't know how to navigate life in our city. We work along side them to give them friendship and support, and set them up to live a successful and independent life in their new homes. Welcome teams are a great volunteer opportunity for individuals, small groups, or Sunday classes.

For the Nations Refugee Outreach

HPPC is partnering with For the Nations: Refugee Outreach to welcome the foreigner into our city. Dallas is one of the top cities in the U.S. in receiving refugees. Truly the nations we are called to reach are within our reach.

Refugees are people who have fled their country of origin and who cannot return to their home due to fear of persecution based on their race, religion, ethnic group, or membership in a particular social or political group. They are assigned to a new location and come with no or very limited language skills or any support system for understanding how to navigate this culture for themselves or their children.

Opportunities

Teach English. Volunteer to assist in teaching English classes once a week for 2 hours. No experience necessary. Childcare is provided for children ages 0-5. Monday-Thursday from 9-11 am or Tuesday-Friday from 12:15-2:15 pm. Register.

Kids Club. Volunteer with Kids Club After School. Monday-Thursday from 4-6pm (children ages 6 and up welcome to join parents, youth can volunteer along beginning at age 15). Register.

Welcome Teams. Welcome Teams are groups of 10-15 volunteers that are assigned to a refugee family new to the US. The Welcome Team helps family get set up and navigate living in a new country. Optimally this will forma relationship with the refugee family that can extend beyond the initial 3-week post-arrival commitment. This is a great ministry opportunity for small groups or friends to do together. Register as an individual or as a group.
