Private Sponsor Organizations (PSOs) are local, regional, and national organizations that recruit, support, and oversee private sponsor groups as they prepare for, receive, and guide refugee newcomers arriving through the Welcome Corps. The participation of these organizations in private sponsorship increases the diversity of actors engaged in refugee welcome and ensures that receiving communities and arriving newcomers are well-supported throughout the process.

PSOs coach Private Sponsor Groups in carrying out core private sponsorship services, including making connections with local community organizations and services. Learn more about the role of Private Sponsor Organizations in the Welcome Corps and register for an orientation session below.
