Last year, 75 YMCA Associations in 34 states hosted more than 800 Welcoming Week eventsnationwide to celebrate what unites us as a community. The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis hosted DACA Renewal Day, Day of Service and movie screenings, among other events. Created by YMCA of the USA’s national partner Welcoming America, Welcoming Week, takes place each year in September, celebrates the growing movement of communities that fully embrace new Americans and their contributions to the social fabric of our country. It’s a chance for neighbors—both immigrants and U.S.-born residents—to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community.
