Refugee Welcome Team

The Service Commission received a grant from the G2G to assist in the formation of a Welcome Team to serve a refugee family that will be resettled in Austin by Refugee Services of Texas. We’re looking for approximately 10 people to commit to join the Welcome Team that will assist with:
Attending a Welcome Team Orientation on Saturday, May 27.
Organize and collect donated furniture and housewares from the congregation.
Participate in welcoming the family at the airport.
Transport the family to their school enrollment, Social Security office, health screening, etc.
Visit with the family weekly and take them out to explore their new Austin home.
After three months, the commitment ends.
This is a great opportunity for individuals and families alike to serve those in need. To learn more or to join the Welcome Team, please contact Brian Haulotte at
