The state of Texas welcomes more refugees each year than any other state in the country. Fort Worth, Texas is one of the central hubs of refugee resettlement. Groups have the opportunity to learn from refugees, non profit leaders, and activists about best practices welcoming and empowering our refugee neighbors. Groups learn about refugee and asylum systems in the United States, work hands on with refugee resettlement agencies setting up apartments, providing groceries, working with children, and advocating for more fair and supportive refugee policies. 

Groups participating in Fort Worth Refugee Welcome learn to put faith into action through service and justice in ways that are relational, sustainable and dignity-affirming. Your group will work with and learn from a variety of organizations and people with whom we partner year round. Each day includes a morning gathering with a biblical reflection and videos to learn more about refugees and the partner organizations for the day, hands-on activities with non-profits, connect time and free time. Connect time is our justice based curriculum that will help your group connect what you are doing on your trip with how you will put your faith into action in new ways when you return home. 

Fort Worth Hunger Relief weeks can be customized for elementary, middle school, high school, and intergenerational groups.

Summer programming begins on Sunday evening and concludes on Friday morning. You may stay an additional night to see the city for an additional $10 per person. (Check out is by 10 am on Saturday morning.) Shorter weeks for younger groups can be scheduled at $70 per participant per night.
