Being a refugee in a new country can be scary, confusing, and lonely. While there are agencies in the US that help refugees with resettlement during the first 3 months, resource constraints leave them unable to assist past that point.

 

Sloane Davidson created Hello Neighbor to help connect refugees with friends and mentors in their community who can be a sustainable support system.

 

The families Hello Neighbor supports all have kids under 18 in the home. Mentors range from young professionals to families and seniors, making Hello Neighbor a family-focused volunteer opportunity.

 

In this interview, Aaron and Sloane discuss common things refugees need help with, how her organization has grown so quickly, and why she was inspired to start this organization.
