Faith and Community Group Partnership

No matter where you are from, we’re glad you’re our neighbor.


Welcome Cards

Welcome cards are a way to be involved in the welcome of refugees to the Lancaster, PA community no matter your age or distance from the office. These cards are given to recently arrived individuals or are placed in the home before a family has arrived.

Blessing Baskets

Blessing Baskets are a way for Faith Partners to collect $25 gift cards to grocery stores or Walmart. Each gift card will then be gifted to a family in need of financial relief to purchase vital items.

Welcome Kits

Welcome Kits combine donated items together to form ready assembled kits. These kits include school, toiletry, home necessity, cleaning, and employment.

Idea: Combine with Welcome Cards and place a friendly note in each kit!

Collect an Offering

Monetary offerings aid in the programing of CWS and make it possible to equip clients with skills and resources as we welcome them to Lancaster.
