BECOME A SPONSOR. CHANGE LIVES.
A new U.S. government program now enables everyday Americans to privately sponsor refugee families from around the world. Becoming a sponsor is a life-changing act of service.
Alight is built on the way we see people. Understanding that a life is about so much more than simply satisfying basic needs, we’re working on how best to help the people we serve find connection, purpose and joy in the challenging situations they find themselves in today.
We are dedicated to the principles that: abundance is everywhere; humans deserve human worthy service; radical accountability transforms our impact; everyone has the power to make change through democratic co-design; and by scaling deep we can rise to the size of the problem while staying close enough to respond to each individual.
When you meet us, we will listen. We will help you bravely do better. And we will celebrate the hope and joy you unleash in the world.
We exist to honor the people we serve. And we will do it the very best we can. Know the promise we are making to the world. And gently remind us of our promise when we need reminding.

Alight’s 5-Country Response As food insecurity impacts more than 40 million people and nearly 10 million children are acutely malnourished or worse, families are feeling out of control. Alight is there with a comprehensive regional response spanning Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Sudan.
Families are coming to a new place and beginning from scratch. Sponsorship is the ultimate neighborly act. Sponsors provide day-to-day support to make sure Ukrainian newcomers are welcomed and have the information and tools they need to start a new life in the U.S.

Vitaliy and his wife Katia were living a life they describe as normal: running their own food shop and raising their three daughters, Kira 2, Alina 8, and Vlada 10, in the Odessa region. They didn’t believe war would ever come to Ukraine. In the early morning of February 24th, the phone rang.
How Alight Is Guiding Ukrainian Refugees to Safe Havens No matter who or where you are, becoming a refugee is overwhelming. It means navigating a new, complex, and evolving world of options, all while fleeing everything you’ve ever known. And for Ukrainian refugees, that trauma—and transition to a new kind of reality—is only just beginning.
Approximately 75,000 Afghans have arrived in the United States since the summer of 2021, when the Taliban takeover sparked a mass evacuation. In the wake of this mass arrival and in partnership with the State of Minnesota, Alight stepped forward to set up homes for arriving Afghan families.
