We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good. Welcoming Week celebrates the growing movement of inclusive 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 – in Greater Indianapolis to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community!
YMCAs across Central Indiana and throughout the U.S. will be hosting special events all week long. Please join us!
