The Impact of Volunteering

When you volunteer with World Relief, you join a movment of lasting change.

The Path

Join us as we forge the path to lasting change.

Creating communities

of love and welcome for our immigrant neighbor.

Help our Afghan Allies

Together, we can bring hope in this critical moment.

Today, there are over 100 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.

Here’s how we do it:

document
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.

RebuildFutures
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. 

group
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”

- Mark Berg, WR Donor

“More than an immigrant support organization, World Relief and its partners make us feel like we are part of a group of friends. They are a blessing from God to our family. May God bless the gift of your service so that you can continue to be a blessing for other immigrants. Thank you!” 

- Rivero Tarre Family, WR Clients

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.”
