For the past year, World Relief Western New York has been partnering with community members like you to welcome and walk alongside immigrants and refugees as they find belonging in their new home.

In one moment, it’s looked like showing up at the airport, with little notice, to welcome a new Afghan family arriving in Rochester. In other moments, it's looked like navigating school registrations, rental agreements, doctor appointments, and so much more!

This year has been challenging, but also brought us great joy. That’s why our first Global Neighbors Gala will be a special one as we come together to look back on your impact and look forward to welcoming a greater influx of refugees and immigrants arriving to Western New York this year.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 to walk alongside immigrants and refugees in Rochester. Will you help us?


Guest Speaker: Matthew Soerens

Matthew Soerens is the US director of church mobilization and advocacy for World Relief and the national coordinator of the Evangelical Immigration Table. He is the coauthor of Welcoming the Stranger, Seeking Refuge, and new book Inalienable.
