2022 Action Group

Houston Welcomes Refugees

Houston Welcomes Refugees is dedicated to embracing refugees arriving in our city with compassion, hope, and honor. They provide Welcome Kits and Move-In Teams to ensure families who are resettling in our city receive the essentials needed to begin their new lives. Additionally, their Welcome Teams connect these families with critical resources to ease their transition and honor them with the gift of continued friendship.

How was Village Heights able to partner with Houston Welcomes Refugees?

The need for the services provided by Houston Welcomes Refugees has increased dramatically in our city over the past few years. However with growth, comes the pains of transition.

Village Heights connected with Houston Welcomes Refugees in response to their request for assistance with spatial planning. Knowing the most effective way to serve the refugee community, the team at Houston Welcomes Refugees knew that their warehouse was not set-up to hold the number of Welcome Kits or volume of volunteer training sessions required.

Since their dream of a larger property and building was not yet a reality, and Village Heights was on the hunt for a community crafted project that would spur our audacious generosity, we embarked on our 2022 project. We partnered with Houston Welcomes Refugees to redesign their warehouse.

  • Implemented new storage solutions
  • Created a more welcoming, inviting and inspiring space for the Houston Welcomes Refugees staff and volunteers
  • Maximized the Houston Welcomes Refugees facility’s efficiency, therefore increasing the number of refugee families they were able to serve.

I want to be a part of a project like this!

I know a non-profit that I’d like to nominate!
