Building Integrated Communities (BIC) is a Project 658 initiative that began in 2015 with the goal of growing connection, collaboration and care for families and organizations in the Charlotte community. BIC monthly meetings offer a natural place for connections to be made, for voices to be heard and for a path to a more welcoming community to be made. Anyone who is interested or already involved in serving the refugee community is welcome to attend. The meetings are on the first Wednesday of every month at The 658 Center from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm and lunch is provided.
In the course of these meetings the need for a centralized, easy-to-use resource guide became clear. Thanks to the work of a Project 658 intern and the collaborative efforts of numerous partner organizations this resource guide is now a reality.

This initiative is partially funded by The Linking Communities Project: Creating Welcome for Refugees. The TLC Project is supporting local, coordinated, and strategic initiatives to increase welcome for refugees and support for resettlement.
