Michigan is seeking residents to assist in housing and resettling migrants, particularly from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

Volunteers are required to commit for at least 90 days, supporting refugees with tasks like airport greetings, housing arrangements, school enrollment for children, and employment assistance for adults.

The initiative aims to create a more inclusive and welcoming Michigan for immigrant and refugee communities.

Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer said, “Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities.”

“Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all,” she continued.

Other cities like New York and Chicago have faced challenges in accommodating migrants, including concerns over crime and shelter capacity.

Last year, Massachusetts also asked residents to host migrant families due to full shelters.

Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll said, “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family.”
