of love and welcome for our immigrant neighbor.

New Horizon

Together, we are investing in change that lasts.

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.

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
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
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. 

People
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.

"It has worked out really well, and we’ve really enjoyed it, everyone has loved it. We hope to expand and do more, and create more teams to do this."

- Johnny, World Relief Good Neighbor Volunteer with Hope Presbyterian Church

World relief was one of the organizations that helped me make more friends with volunteers, they drove me around, took me out, try and move forward, and start looking for jobs, and I found my first job.

- Alphonse, WR Client

"But once I got [to Memphis], I told them all my story. They were able to process the visa for [my husband] Abdinasir, and now he’s here. In many, many, many ways, my survival was because of World Relief."

- Rafia, WR Client
