COVID-19

Looking for help and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic?

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.

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

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.

"There are so many different facets of life that are impacted when starting over in a new nation and that is overwhelming even in the best of circumstances, so I appreciate that World Relief really aims to cater to the whole person and family, regardless of age or stage. I'm generally a helpful kind of person so I've loved being able to jump in and lend a hand wherever help or my skills were needed!"

-Sara, World Relief Volunteer

"World Relief covered our rent for the first few months and helped me find a job. They drove me to interviews and helped so much. Years later we are still in touch with people from World Relief. They made us feel so welcome!"

- Irina, World Relief Client

"Working with World Relief for the last five years allowed me to see the direct impact on the most vulnerable in our local community. Making personal connection through being a good neighbor has been transformational for both sides.""

-Paul, World Relief Donor
