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

[RE]BUILD

Together, we're rebuilding communities of love and welcome.

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.

"I remember five years ago when I moved to the USA, I was thinking on the airplane, I don't know anyone in this country; I don't know where to go and what to do. When I arrived, World Relief was waiting for us in the airport. I was so happy!"

– Idris M., WR Client

When I arrived, I didn't know anything about sewing. I got the training in class, and when COVID happened I started making the masks. I'm very glad to know when I'm sewing on the machine, I am helping people protect themselves. Also, I get some money to take care of my kids.

– Eida M., WEAVE Sewist and WR Client

"We donated to World Relief Spokane because we wanted to support refugees, especially during a time when many are shouting louder and louder that we should fear other people from different cultures."

– Matt M., WR Donor
