2019/2020 UPDATE!

As we process and work through the drastic changes in the national climate of refugee resettlement over the past few months, we have to report the need for a “soft landing” for those legally new to our neighborhoods is more acute than ever.

Your WELCOME HOME team is currently preparing a new series of training sessions and new support so we can mobilize our church families to reach out in love. We would love to have our support, your input and involvement.

Please feel free to contact us and join our news list so we can update you on our next training sessions and mobilization. A simple email to dans@welcomehome.buzz will add you to our update list.

THANKS! You’re Playing Our Song!

A great big Thanks to all of you who spoke with Welcome Home about our need for a working electronic Keyboard. Federal Way Church of the Nazarene has generously donated just what we needed! PTL! The instrument will be used for a new music program involving refugee teens and young adults in South King County. This donation is greatly appreciated!


A Welcome Home project is in need of a new or used/working keyboard. If you have one to donate, we’ll put it to very good use. Respond to Dan at dans@welcomehome.buzz

Welcome Home can use a new or used working electronic keyboard!
