Today, there are over 80 million people around the globe who have been forced, or made the painful choice, to leave their home. After years of fleeing violence, famine and extreme poverty, their greatest hope is that they’ll find a safe place to rebuild their lives and call home.
Sadly, this hope remains unattainable for many of our immigrant neighbors who feel marginalized, lonely and afraid. Rather than finding opportunities to flourish, many are losing hope as they struggle to overcome unexpected vulnerabilities and systemic barriers to integration.
You Can Help Make a Difference
If you’re like us, this breaks your heart. And you want to know what you can do to help.
Here’s the good news. When you join us today, you can.
At World Relief, we’ve welcomed, advocated for, and helped integrate over 400,000 immigrants in vulnerable situations to communities all across our nation. And we’ve done so with the help of bold and compassionate women and men just like you.
You can join our global network of over 95,000 volunteers positively impacting our world by dedicating your time and resources as a volunteer.
You can seek justice and mercy for the most vulnerable, using your voices to influence those in positions of power who can save lives.
When you give today, you join us in bringing hope, healing and restoration to millions of suffering men, women and children around the globe.
With your help, we can continue helping immigrants in vulnerable situations in the United States find hope and rebuild their lives, creating communities of love and welcome that we all feel proud to be a part of.
Here’s how we do it:
Provide vital services
We provide newly arrived refugees and other immigrants with access to basic necessities and begin them on the journey to belonging through english classes, immigration legal services, employment services, and more.
Build just and welcoming communities
We equip churches and community members with the information they need to educate, advocate and take action on behalf of our immigrant neighbors. And we work to change systems and resulting injustices that marginalize refugees and other immigrants in the U.S.
Bring people together
We connect churches and community members with immigrant families to foster transformative relationships, where both new and long-term community members flourish and find a sense of unity and belonging.
Partnering with World Relief helps us see beyond our own safe world and gives us more of a global perspective, which we believe God has called all Christians to do…. We believe [in the] biblical mandate to help ‘the most vulnerable…. [and] working with World Relief [helps us] do this.
