International Awareness And Involvement

Welcome To America Project

Welcome To America Project (WTAP) serves foreign refugees who have recently been relocated to the Phoenix area by the U.S. State Department.

 

These refugees are supported by local resettlement agencies that help with their transition. Refugee families often live in refugee camps for an average of10-12 years and come from all over the world. The refugees we help are here on a special visa and ultimately become U.S. citizens. They are highly motivated, resourceful and eager to start a new life. They develop strong ties to their new communities, make active contributions, work hard and pay taxes.
