Friendship Partners (FPs) are friends with refugees who assist them in specific areas of need. When refugees arrive to the U.S., they are oftentimes isolated from the greater community or a support system. Friendship Partners (FPs) are individuals who want to love on the refugee community by spending time with them, showing them emotional support and assisting with their adjustment to the U.S. through relationship.

Good Neighbor Teams (GNT) are a group of people partnered for friendship with a newly arrived refugee group or family. The GNT makes weekly visits with their refugee partner for at least 6 months. Click here for more information.
In this role, you will join a small group to welcome a new refugee partner to the U.S. by meeting them at the airport and helping them get to their new home. You will help create “Welcome to the U.S.” signs and provide a small welcome gift. After assisting in this way, you will say good bye to your new friends, and hopefully meet up with them again to continue a friendship. Click here for more information.
