Ways to Serve.
Salem For Refugees relies heavily on volunteers to accomplish our mission. We are always looking for new people from the Salem area who want to join our volunteer teams and impact the lives of our new neighbors.
Join us on the first Monday of each month from 12pm - 1pm to stay educated on what is happening with refugee resettlement in Salem and engaged in welcoming our newest neighbors. Learn More
Restart Kits are bins of new household items provided to furnish homes for our newly arriving refugee families. Download this flyer for a complete list of Restart Kits needed & instructions for putting them together.
Form a Good Neighbor Team
Good Neighbor Teams are designed to provide a warm welcome and hospitality to our New Neighbors. Teams range from 3-10 people who are assigned to a newly arriving family. Learn More
Resource Teams are teams of volunteers who work around a specific resource area and provide services for refugee families in the areas of employment, housing, education, legal, etc. Learn More
Beyond Restart Kits and furniture, we keep an updated list of other necessary items for furnishing homes for our new neighbors on our online wishlist.
