What is a co-sponsor?

Co-sponsors are an organized group of volunteers from the community who support one family through a formalized welcoming program that lasts approximately four to six months. They may be groups from a specific faith community, a mosque, a Rotary Club, a local business, or more.

What is the goal of a co-sponsorship?

To assist KRM in welcoming a refugee family and empowering them to rebuild their lives in a new home.

What do co-sponsors do?

Co-sponsors show their support for one new refugee family in various ways, such as:

  • Serve as guides, advocates, and friends to a new refugee family
  • Make a financial commitment of $2,500 for assistance to the family
  • Gather household goods and furniture to prepare for a new family’s arrival
  • Join KRM at the airport arrival to welcome the new family
  • Visit the new family during their first three months in the U.S.
  • Assist with transportation and caretaking when available
  • Learn about and honor their cultural background and share your heritage in return
  • Ensure that the family’s religious beliefs are honored without intention of conversion
  • And more!
