IMPORTANT UPDATE: Refugee arrivals are at an all-time low, therefore there are few airport pickups and other initial resettlement appointment needs.

Volunteers can access the Track-It-Forward volunteer portal to sign up for any of the scheduled needs. Once signed up, the volunteer will receive detailed information necessary to complete the transportation appointment. These opportunities may include but are not limited to: airport pickups, medical appointments, school enrollments, job interviews, job readiness classes and additional transportation needs.
