Bienvenida Dinners

Our Bienvenida Dinners partner with local restaurants in hosting welcoming dinners. They are a way for new immigrant families to learn about their community, receive helpful information and tools to enhance their transition, and make new friends! Each local business sponsors portion of the dinner to welcome newly arrived immigrant to their community.
