The Welcoming Center

Picture above, Anne O'Callaghan talking to an audience about the ethnic and industry breakdown of small businesses near the Welcoming Center.

The conference was a community outreach from Philadelphia's public radio station WHYY, and was held May 18, 2009, and other pictures on this page, including the pie charts, are from that conference.

Mrs O'Callaghan is Irish, she sounds like my late mother and I love to listen to her. You can too, o this page!

In April 2012 Mrs O'Callaghan retired from her position as CEO of the Welcoming Center.

I don't know what she is doing now, but I am sure she is raging against the oncoming night by doing the maximum amount of good for the maximum amount of humans. God bless Mrs O'Callaghan and whatever she does!

From the Welcoming Center:

"In fall 2001, PAIRC conducted a comprehensive study to assess the landscape of the Philadelphia area’s immigrant service providers. This study found that the services offered to immigrants were extensive and filled a significant need. At the same time, however, these services were fragmented and hard to access. In fact, in an informal survey of these organizations, all discussed the need for a centralized information source.

Anne O’Callaghan, herself an Irish immigrant who has been in the Philadelphia area for 3 decades, observed that the situation had not changed much since her arrival. Change was the challenge.


In response, she founded the Welcoming Center to serve as a centralized resource and employment center for immigrants in Philadelphia. The Welcoming Center opened in 2003, and Anne served as its president and CEO for the next 9 years.


Since opening, the Welcoming Center has worked tirelessly to help new Americans in this region, both through direct services and by raising awareness among the business and political communities about the positive impact that immigrants have on our economy. One of the Welcoming Center’s key roles has been to help create strategic relationships across a broad-based coalition of ethnic community-based organizations, immigrant service providers, and corporate, government, union, and foundation leaders in the greater Philadelphia region; and the promotion of immigrants and immigration as assets to regional economic development.


KEY ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • Placing jobseekers in jobs with more than 250 different companies in high-demand industries including healthcare, warehouse, manufacturing, hospitality, and retail

  • Providing good candidates repeatedly to companies -- over 65% of our employers turn to us repeatedly to hire additional candidates

  • Giving academic and social support to more than 700 immigrant and native-born students during the six years that our Project Bridging Cultures operated at South Philadelphia High School

  • Providing more than 200 entrepreneurs each year with information and resources about municipal regulations and licensing, technical assistance on business start-ups, and practical advice on crime and safety issues

  • Providing free legal consultations to over 200 immigrants each year

  • Partnering with a number of organizations to raise awareness of the importance of immigration as it relates to economic development

  • Offering seminars that feature nationally recognized demographers and experts on recent trends on immigration and the implications of immigration on our region.

  • Creating dozens of detailed publications and reports about immigration, workforce development, and business development

And, of course, the accomplishment of which we are most proud: Providing information, referral and consultation services to more than 9,000 individuals from over 140 nations around the world."
