Today, there are over 100 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
At World Relief, we’ve welcomed, advocated alongside, and supported over 400,000 immigrants in vulnerable situations as they choose how to integrate into communities all across the nation.
And we’ve done so with the help of bold and compassionate neighbors just like you.
You can join our global network of over 95,000 volunteers positively impacting our world by dedicating your time and resources as a volunteer.
You can seek justice and mercy for those in vulnerable situations by using your voices to influence those in positions of power.
When you give today, you join us in working for justice, equity, healing and restoration for millions of individuals suffering and experiencing oppression around the globe.
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 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 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. We work to change systems and resulting injustices that marginalize refugees and other immigrants in the U.S.
Bring people together
We connect newcomers to individuals, groups, and faith communities to foster transformative relationships, where both new and long-term community members flourish and find a sense of unity and belonging.
“More than an immigrant support organization, World Relief and its partners make us feel like we are part of a group of friends. They are a blessing from God to our family. May God bless the gift of your service so that you can continue to be a blessing for other immigrants. Thank you!”
