Co-sponsorship is a special relationship between a local resettlement agency, a community group, and a refugee family. Co-sponsors bring an essential level of commitment, continuity, and care for the refugees they serve and significantly multiply and extend the services refugees receive.
By registering as a Co-Sponsorship Team, your group is indicating a commitment to welcoming refugees in your community. Co-sponsorship groups must represent an established community, such as a school, employer, or faith congregation.
There are three commitments required to participate in co-sponsorship:
- Minimum one year of service
- Signed agreement with your local resettlement agency to support a refugee family
- Raise between $3,000 and $7,000 to extend financial support for a refugee family based on their needs
By filling out this registration form, your team is agreeing to undertake the commitments of co-sponsorship. Your registration will be shared with our local partners, who will contact you for next steps.
