Hearts & Homes for Refugees announced that the Pelham-based nonprofit has been inducted into the inaugural Leadership Cohort for the Hello Neighbor Network as a result of its exemplary work in helping refugees in Westchester County.

The Hello Neighbor Network brings together a cohort of nonprofit leaders that are dedicated to helping refugees as they navigate their new lives in America. The cohort will be responsible for generating new ideas and sharing resources that help combat polarization and increase inclusiveness for refugees in communities across the nation.

“The need for collaboration among community-based organizations to help refugees in America is massive,” said Kathie O’Callaghan, founder of Hearts & Homes for Refugees. “The work of Hearts & Homes for Refugees can be replicated across the country in other communities. We are proud to be working alongside other grassroots community organizations and honored to have been chosen to participate in the first cohort of the Hello Neighbor Network. We think this is one more way that Hearts & Homes can grow in sustainability and impact.”
