Welcome Home Fund

Part of being a welcoming community means ensuring our newest neighbors have stable, safe, and healthy housing. By contributing to the IRC in Seattle's Welcome Home Fund you can help refugees and survivors of trafficking maintain housing as they rebuild their lives in Washington State.

For many families, just a few hundred dollars in short-term rental assistance can mean the difference between homelessness and maintaining housing stability – and that stability is key to helping people heal and achieve their goals. This flexible fund will allow IRC case managers to address families' housing needs while they transition into new jobs, undergo medical treatment, find safety from abuse or exploitation, or perhaps just need a little more time to settle into their new community.



Make a tax-deductible donation of any amount - every bit helps us reach our goal of $20,000. Everyone who supports the Welcome Home Fund is invited to a fun, family-friendly celebration at Optimism Brewing on Sunday, July 7th!
