What is USAHello?
USAHello is a one-stop, comprehensive website that houses the resources and information newcomers need to build successful lives for themselves and their families in the United States.
Resettled refugees and immigrants have collaborated on our content, which is written for English learners and those with interrupted educations. Our programs are further enhanced by automated and manual translations and the latest in multi-modal learning techniques. We use the proliferation of mobile technology and the power of the internet to provide safe, trustworthy support where and when it is needed.
USAHello is unique.
USAHello is the only comprehensive online resource for refugees and immigrants in the USA. Newcomers in every state visit our website, and we have partnerships with resettlement agencies and other non-profits across the country. Our work complements on-the-ground sources of support that already exist by making them more comprehensible and accessible to those who need them with FindHello, our mobile app launched in 2019 in partnership with UNHCR.

USAHello is guided by the population it serves.
USAHello is intimately interconnected with the community it is trying to help. We believe that newcomers are their own best advocates. More than half of our board members are resettled refugees or first- and second-generation immigrants. Our programs were developed and are continually improved with input from newcomer communities, including USAHello’s Refugee Technology and Advisory Council.
