Each year, Yale Chicago teams up with RefugeeOne to sponsor a family immigrating to Chicago. They arrive in October so now is the time to participate. Here’s how you can help.

Help us reach our $2,500 fund raising goal.
  • Shop for furniture and supplies
  • Set up the apartment
  • Welcome the family home and cook a meal
  • Introduce them to our great city!

This is an exciting enterprise and we hope you choose to become part of the volunteer crew! Contact [email protected] to sign up or to ask questions.
