What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

New Neighbor Programs

When you become a New Neighbor, you are helping to ease the loneliness and isolation that many refugees experience when moving to a new country. The New Neighbor programs work to address cultural hurdles such as language, academics and citizenship, but also pave the way for beautiful, mutual friendships. These programs include New Neighbor, New Neighbor for Youth, New Neighbor Conversations, and New Neighbor Citizenship.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants

When refugees arrive in the U.S., they only have what they can carry. While refugees receive three months of help through a resettlement agency, starting over from scratch is daunting, both financially and emotionally. Through the Pack programs, volunteers can make a huge difference by providing essential supplies, food, and most especially, a warm welcome. Programs include Welcome to America! Packs, Grocery Care Packs, and Baby Care Packs.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants

Exodus offers a variety of education opportunities that allow participants to learn about refugees and cross-cultural experiences. Programs include Engaging with Refugees: Cross-Cultural Training, Fleeing For Your Life: Refugee Journey Simulation, Who Is My Neighbor? Study Guide, and periodic Book Clubs for adults and youth.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
