FindHello is a free app available as a website or for download on your phone. It helps you find nearby services on a searchable map. FindHello lists over 6,000 thousand resources for immigrants across the USA. FindHello was developed in partnership with UNHCR, along with valuable input from our refugee and immigrant community.
“The FindHello app is an excellent resource for helping refugees and asylees integrate smoothly and contribute in positive ways to their new communities in the United States.”
— Matthew Reynolds, Regional Rep. for U.S. and Caribbean, UNHCR

“Save the children supports border communities, respite shelters and social service agencies with resources, supplies and technical expertise they need to address the unique needs of families seeking their help. FindHello is a valuable tool to help connect families with critical services in destination cities.”
Marcus AndrewsUS Together AmeriCorps Volunteer
"Columbus is a rapidly growing city with nearly endless resources and cultural institutions that are often unknown to longtime residents, let alone newcomers. At US Together we work hard to connect the people we work with to the resources that make them feel at home here, but there is only so much information that we can share during our two-day cultural orientation classes. Having all kinds of resources listed in one place on the FindHello app is invaluable for helping new arrivals find community and feel at home in our city."
"USAHello partnered with UNHCR to expand their FindHello application, which uses a mapping tool to help refugees locate resources such as housing, food, health care, and jobs in their local area. By connecting these technical tools through a centralized data platform, refugee resettlement agencies can share and access information, working together to help ease pain points in the resettlement process, improve operations, and better resettle refugees."
