Arriving and Thriving
Having fled poverty, persecution, and war, refugees, asylees, and other immigrants often arrive in the United States with high hopes of building a better life for themselves and their children. Upon arrival, however, they face a staggering number of challenges as they seek to rebuild their lives. Not only do these families have many tangible needs to meet, such as housing, transportation, employment, and health care, but they also face a number of intangible challenges as they learn to navigate a foreign culture, far away from their friends and family.
Many struggle with feelings of isolation, despair, anxiety and depression. World Relief’s holistic Case Management program is designed to help our new neighbors overcome these barriers so they can not only survive, but thrive, in their new home.
Serving Immigrants for Over 40 Years
For over 40 years nationally and 15 years locally, we’ve been providing case management support to refugees and, most recently, other immigrants in vulnerable situations across our communities. Our staff and trained volunteers support individuals and families to meet basic needs such as housing, access to food, and health care. We also partner with our clients to set goals, assess strengths, tackle challenges and connect families with local resources. This vital support serves as an anchor for many families who rely on this coaching to get on their feet and reach their goals in the U.S., Baltimore and surrounding counties.
Together, we can help.
“I would like to extend my gratitude to you, the great people who have supported me so much during my most challenging times. I appreciate it so much. You have helped me become an independent and self-reliant woman.”
— Selena, WR Client
