Help refugees and immigrants in the U.S. rebuild their lives.
Today, over 68 million people have been forcibly displaced worldwide. Most of whom cannot return home. After years of fleeing violence, war, famine and extreme poverty, their greatest hope is to once again belong—to find a place to rebuild their homes and lives.
World Relief partners with local churches and community-based organizations across the United States to provide support for thousands of immigrants and refugees who are seeking a place to call home. We do this by:
Health & Mental Health Counseling
Immigration Legal Services
Partnerships of Impact
We are committed to mobilizing partner churches and local religious, social and civic organizations into action and advocacy on behalf of refugees and immigrants. We provide the tools and advice needed to empower partners to learn, advocate and live out their heart for the vulnerable. Through this approach, in 2017:
32,000 refugees and immigrants were welcomed
11,000 were provided with legal services
2,500 were assisted with citizenship applications
6,500 volunteers were mobilized
Coming to the U.S. was a dream. I was so hard, but it was worth it. It is worth the work, the sweat, everything. The second we landed in the U.S. we were welcomed by the Church. They had an apartment for us, brought us food, drove us to the hospital every day, and became our friends. We could not have made it through this journey without them We mourn, yes, but we are blessed. we're building our future here.
