USAHello launches Afghan Resource Center

USAHello is proud to announce the launch of the Afghan Resource Center, a comprehensive online hub professionally translated in Dari/دري and Pashto/پشتو to help Afghans start their lives here in the USA. The resource center features content on visa options and benefits available for Afghan newcomers as well as practical information on a variety of topics.

When USAHello was invited by Welcome.US to serve as the primary information resource for our new Afghan neighbors, we were able to respond quickly to meet the needs of incoming evacuees. We are grateful for community input, including Afghans who arrived through the SIV program in previous years, in developing the center to ensure it is a compilation of useful and relevant resources.

FindHello expands resources for arriving Afghans

USAHello is updating the free FindHello service finder app to include Afghan-specific resources in key cities for Afghan resettlement. This has included expanding our partnerships and hiring contractors.
