CSI Refugee Resettlement Committee

Who We Are

The CSI Refugee Resettlement Committee is a group of CSI members and friends dedicated to providing a welcoming and supportive community for refugee families. We are trained by Church World Service (CWS) and HIAS as an official “Community Sponsorship Organization” and a “Welcome Circle” We are prepared to welcome and integrate refugee families in our community.

Like many of our ancestors when they immigrated to the US, the families we help are escaping aggression and unimaginable hardships. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for the families we help to live and raise their children in peace and safety. This work also provides members of the CSI Community with opportunities to change lives and engage in Tikkun Olam to make the world a better place.

What We Do

We are a group of volunteers helping refugees establish new lives in our community. Our goal is to help these families become integrated and productive members of our community. We provide support during their transition acclimating to their new country and a new way of life, while holding onto and respecting their traditions. Our volunteer efforts include finding housing, gathering furniture and clothing donations, providing English tutoring, identifying employment opportunities, providing transportation, navigating the health care system, and more.

Get Involved

There are numerous ways to get involved. Please email us if you would like to learn more. This work involves volunteers, donors, and supporters (advocates).
