Mental Health

Refugees and other immigrants endure profound physical and psychological trauma after leaving home, fleeing violence and persecution and often being separated from family and loved ones.

It’s no surprise, then, that many of these courageous men, women and children arrive in the U.S. with the emotional and physical scars associated with that experience.

Unfortunately, adjusting to a new culture in the U.S. often only adds to these scars, as families navigate the new emotional challenges that come with language barriers, financial stress and other household problems.


Addressing Trauma


At World Relief, our goal is to improve the lives of immigrants who have experienced severe loss and trauma.

Through on-site therapy, counseling, group based programming, and individual and family case management services, we aim to bring hope, healing and restoration to these survivors.



“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
