Governor Whitmer is focused on making Michigan a more welcoming state. The Office of Global Michigan was established to help grow Michigan's economy by retaining and attracting global talent; and to promote the skills, energy, and entrepreneurial spirit of our immigrant and refugee communities. Consistent with that vision, the office supports immigrant and refugee integration initiatives for the state. It works with state agencies that provide services to immigrants and refugees and strives to minimize or eliminate barriers to accessing those state services.
Volunteer or Donate Resources to help Afghan Arrivals
With approximately 1,300 Afghan allies and nationals expected to be resettled in Michigan in the coming months, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Community Service Commission are calling on Michiganders to volunteer and donate to ease the transition and welcome individuals and families to the United States.
The Afghan Arrivals site allows volunteers to share specific resources they can offer for the variety of tasks needed to help support and welcome individuals and families to the state. Michiganders can volunteer in-person or remotely and can donate a variety of goods and services, including financial resources.
