Established in 2016, Welcome Home Jersey City is an all-volunteer organization devoted to helping newly-arrived refugees and asylees begin their lives in the greater Jersey City area.

Some of our services include:
o Cleaning and furnishing apartments for new arrivals in Jersey City
o Teaching ESL classes and providing individual tutoring and support
o Hosting cultural training in conjunction with Church World Service
o Funding summer camp programs
o Organizing an annual back-to-school drive
