Welcoming Cities are guided by the principles of inclusion and creating communities that prosper because everyone feels welcome, including immigrants and refugees.

On June 21, 2017, the Bend City Council unanimously supported a resolution for the City of Bend to be recognized as a Welcoming City.

As a Welcoming City, we join other welcoming communities around the country in celebrating Welcoming Week, Sept. 14-23, 2018.  Welcoming Week is a series of events in our community that raise awareness about our status as a Welcoming City and the benefits of welcoming everyone in Bend.
