Refugee Resettlement Ministry Team

To date over 500 people have been welcomed to Dane County.

You Can Help
Join other individuals and congregations by donating household goods and furniture to furnish an apartment for a newly arriving family. Giving your time and talents through cultural coaching/mentoring, language tutoring or serving on the coordination team also helps welcome the newcomers.

You can help offer hospitality in meaningful ways. Specifically, help is needed with:

  • Welcome Boxes
  • New arrivals at the Dane County Regional Airport
  • Becoming a literacy tutor or cultural mentor
  • Inviting refugees to a social event in your community

For more information about Refugee Resettlement, contact Co Chairs: Dan Odden at (608) 643-5128 and Lisa Hansen at (608) 838-7929.
