About The Welcome Project:
Welcome's mission is to empower marginalized and at risk refugees and immigrants by providing education and skills training, teaching and employment opportunities, and connections to the greater Cincinnati community by showcasing, elevating, and being a point of sale for their work.
Local immigrants and refugees bring developed skills to their new home but lack the ability to utilize these skills due to language, economic and business barriers. Welcome helps solve this by engaging them in a social enterprise including a retail store that also functions as a workshop and educational space.
They see approximately 30 refugee and immigrant artists, chefs, and makers, at Welcome each week. These makers come from Mexico, Syria, Cameroon, Nigeria, Venezuela, Belarus, Guatemala, Bolivia, Jordan, Lebanon, and many other countries throughout the world.
Cincinnati has a rich heritage of being an immigrant city. Many who are marginalized and at risk feel isolated and vulnerable. Their art enables them to share their voice without English language and build friendships. Their goal is that through The Welcome Project, they will empower immigrants and refugees with knowledge and break down the barriers related to employment and housing that many face.
