Expansion Updates

World Relief Spokane is expanding. The Washington address is now closed. The new corporate office is now open. Located at 11707 E Sprague Ave, Suite 106, Spokane Valley, 99206.

Welcoming Refugees & Immigrants

It starts with you.

WHY IT MATTERS

 

103 million people forcibly displaced

32.5 million refugees fleeing violence and persecution. They need safety. They need peace. They need the building blocks for a new life. You can be part of the community that welcomes them and helps them flourish.

Make an Impact

Since 1992, World Relief Spokane has welcomed nearly 12,000 refugees and other new arrivals. But we haven’t done it alone. It takes volunteers, landlords, employers, churches and friends. Join this welcoming community today.

Whatever your skill set, we need it. Be a driver. Be a conversation partner. Be a friend. And learn from someone a little different from you.  

With your help, we can make Spokane one of the most welcoming cities on the planet.

“As a young family with three children, we have lived as strangers in Kenya. We remember the challenges of language and adapting to a new culture. The nationals who helped us and prayed for us are still close friends these decades later. We donate to World Relief Spokane because the staff and volunteers are the hands and feet of Jesus welcoming strangers to our community.”

- Dr. Sam and Judy Palpant, donors
