Project Welcome Refugee is a non-profit organization started by a Catalyst Group of KPUMC. The group's first project was to host a First Thanksgiving Dinner for recently resettled refugees in Dallas in November 2014, a tradition that continues.
The group has also helped settle three refugee families through Refugee Services of Texas, including a Bhutanese family of 3, a Syrian family of 6, and a family of 7 from Afghanistan. Also, the group found temporary affordable housing for another Syrian family in the first half of 2016.
