USAHello is a nonprofit organization that uses the power of the internet to help immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees, and the communities that welcome them build brighter futures for themselves and their families. USAHello’s platform serves as a hub for trustworthy information and educational resources visited by hundreds of thousands of people from diverse backgrounds every year. Our popular online classroom offers free citizenship and GED preparation classes.
Bottom Line for Portland
When refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants arrive in our city, they need a place to find trusted information and tools to continue their education and find the services they need. Last year, over 9,600 newcomers in the Portland metro area used our platform to find resources in our city, study for their GED, and become citizens.

“This is exactly what I needed when I arrived in the U.S.: one place to find answers to all the things I didn’t know about. Now, I am here, contributing to our community and working to give my children opportunities.” —Mohamed Ali, Somali refugee and new Portlander
