Congregations and organizations welcoming and walking with our new neighbors
Communities of Welcome will host a Culture and Food Fair on March 26 at Raymond Russell Park. This event will bring together new arriving Afghan families with long-time San Antonio residents.
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.
The Communities of Welcome Project has launched and local congregations and organizations are getting acquainted with Afghan families.
There may be fresh opportunities to participate in the Fall of 2022.
