Welcome To Austin, Texas!
At First Step In you’ll find information for refugees who have resettled in Austin as well as the volunteers who help them. You’ll find resources, tips and how-to’s to help refugees build new lives here on topics like finding affordable housing, opening a bank account or helping children succeed in school. Think of it as an “instruction manual” for living in Austin.
One part of this website is written for refugees. The other part is written for volunteers and people who want to know how to help. We have so much to learn from one another.
To refugees, we say, “Welcome.” To volunteers, we say, “Thank you.”
We’re here to help all of you.
We Need Volunteers
