About Welcome Tucson

Welcome Tucson Web Portal is a resource directory for immigrants of all backgrounds seeking out connections to services that are already in place in our community.  Many of the Tucson residents including businesses and organizations are not aware of services available in our community, so the City of Tucson has put together a resource directory for reference.

Help us broaden and enrich our diverse community by sending us ideas, resources, and comments to our email address:  tucsonimmigrant@tucsonaz.gov

If you would like us to post an event or an activity on our calendar of events, please send us an email with detail information to tucsonimmigrant@tucsonaz.gov
