The Immigrant Welcome Center provides immigrant newcomers and refugees with the information they need to get off to a good start in Indianapolis. Our new neighborhood branches are staffed by Natural Helpers, established immigrants who know the challenges of moving to a new country and who share a common language with those they serve.
We can assist you with information and referrals for employment, ESL and language needs, housing, transportation, education, legal services and more.

Do you help with emergency needs like food, clothing or shelter?
The branches do not provide food, clothing, shelter, money, payment assistance or other types of direct services. Our Natural Helpers can provide information and refer you to the community organizations that may be able to help you if you have these types of needs.
Do you provide services to undocumented immigrants?
Natural Helpers connect newcomers to agencies, organizations, or clinics and are not required to ask a newcomer about his or her status. We will help any immigrant in need, regardless of legal status.
What if I need someone to translate?
Assistance is available in English, Arabic, French, Kiswahili and Spanish. See the branch listings above for the specific languages spoken at each branch. If you need assistance, you can visit any of the branches, and a Natural Helper will try to assist in finding someone who speaks your language.
How much do you charge for your services?
Our services are FREE to any immigrant or refugee in need.
