“Sponsoring a refugee family was a life-changing experience for my entire family and my community. While empathy and kindness are the most important traits for welcomers, accessible and informative training courses can help you and the newcomer have the best possible experience.” – Ed Shapiro, The Shapiro Foundation, Boston, Massachusetts
