Newcomers Become Neighbors

When more than 600 Afghan refugees arrived in 2022, Worcester’s resettlement agencies collaborated to rapidly provide housing, food, and warm clothing. Front-line responders included Welcoming Alliance for Refugee Ministry (WARM), whose hundreds of trained volunteers supported and befriended the many Afghan families who spent their first months in hotels. WARM volunteers organized outings for children at gyms and parks as well as social events for women such as sewing circles and English classes that continue now that families are in apartments.
