About VIP Welcome
VIP Welcome is an initiative aimed at the safe entry of Afghani refugees into the United States of America in the midst of a global crisis. We aim to empower local communities to provide families with everything from housing, food, medical care, and clothing to immigration support, assistance seeking employment, and enrolling in school. Our goal is to equip every family with all of the resources they need in order to begin a new life in the US.
VIP has been a force in advocating for vulnerable populations for over 30 years with non-profit status housed in our Family Advocacy Center in East Los Angeles. We have partnered with No One Left Behind in a supporting role with the aim that we could create a standard of support for arriving families that can become the standard for the country. We are not replacing or competing with any existing agencies private or public. We are a conduit to bring the resources of the general public in to play as a “welcome circle” of kindness and welcome that can surround each family and help stabilize them here in the US.
It is going to take a village of US citizens to bring families to the United States, to our cities andour towns and include them in the dream of what so many of us believe should be the standard for all those who live here or who seek asylum within our boundaries.
