From Home to Home
An experiential exhibit to build understanding around forced displacement and refugee resettlement.
From Home to Home is an experiential exhibit that builds understanding around the crisis of forced displacement. Refugees and asylees face many challenges and difficult decisions along their journey to resettlement. From Home to Home simulates these decision points and common difficulties in a walk-through exhibit. Our staff will guide you through the exhibit, help debrief the experience, and facilitate a debrief time over snacks and hot drinks.
Groups: $1,000 per group
Reserve a private group experience for your employees, church members, students, etc. to not only gain a deeper understanding of the global crisis of displacement but to also engage in a private debrief that allows your group to go deeper with trusted peers and explore ways your crew can respond to resettlement needs in your community.
Individuals: $30 per person
Come experience the exhibit as an individual alongside others who are interested in learning more about displacement and resettlement.

World Relief Western Washington opened its doors to the first wave of refugees from Southeast Asia in 1979. Today, thousands of people have had their lives changed: both by being welcomed and by opening their homes and lives to welcome others.
The refugees and immigrants we serve display incredible resilience as they take difficult jobs, learn a new language & culture, and even navigate the citizenship process--all to put down roots so that they and their children will thrive. Your generosity makes this possible.
While building a future for themselves and with your partnership, these families have also been empowered to give back. Our communities are enriched by new cultures, new ideas, new businesses, and new leaders. Having been shown incredible hospitality in a time of need, each of them--each of us--turns and extends hospitality to others.
