Community Sponsors

Congregations and organizations welcoming and walking with our new neighbors
Big News! Our Community Sponsor/Community of Welcome deadline has been extended to Jan 14!

We welcome you to this sacred work of hospitality as we build friendships and community with our new Afghan neighbors. Our first annual SA Welcome Walk was a meaningful success as people from across the City gathered to walk with Afghans on their journey. Enjoy this brief video to get a glimpse of that day.

The partnership of Interfaith San Antonio Alliance and Culturingua grew out of the many agencies and individuals who are diligently working together as the Afghan Refugee Response Collaborative.
Now that we've hosted the two info sessions, we're officially inviting you and your organization to participate as a Welcoming Community for Afghan Refugees. We want to provide you with the tools from those sessions to help you organize.
Please know we need your application by January 14 for this five-month project. Our goal is to help you initiate long-term relationships with Afghan families. Note that there are several program options from which to choose, you are not expected to commit to all of them. On the application form, you'll have the opportunity to select options.
Please review the application now, so we can answer any questions ahead of the deadline.

Contact if you'd like the information slides presented in the info session sent via email.
We recognize this is a joy-filled challenge and our prayers are with you as you gather your team.
