Jubilee Heralds: Announcing a New Expression in Support of Refugees

The Sponsor Circle Program is a community-led resettlement initiative that allows  everyday Americans to take on the responsibility of welcoming an Afghan newcomer to  their communities. An emergency response launched to ensure that all arriving Afghans  receive welcome and support, the Sponsor Circle Program pairs Afghan newcomers with  community groups eager to provide support. As a sponsor circle, you and your neighbors  will take on tasks like finding initial housing, stocking the pantry, connecting children to  school, providing initial income support, and helping adults to find employment. 

• Communities Circle Up – Bring together at least five adults in your neighborhood to  form a sponsor circle. Complete background checks, fundraise, and prepare to submit  your group’s application for certification.  
• Members Make a Plan – Check your knowledge of what is needed to serve as a sponsor circle and prepare a Welcome Plan in advance of being matched with a newcomer.  Support in completing your Welcome Plan is available
• Circles Welcome Newcomers – Once certified, sponsor circles will welcome the new comer directly into the community and provide tailored support through the initial integration process
