Welcome refugees in your community
There’s so much you can do to help a refugee feel safe and comfortable in their new home. Help create welcoming communities by volunteering at the CWS refugee resettlement office nearest to you.
Opportunities may include serving as a language partner, assisting with school registration, accompanying a family grocery shopping, or mobilizing your faith community as a welcome team for an arriving family.
No CWS resettlement office in your community? Other refugee resettlement organizations across the country also welcome community engagement. Find one in your area here.
Mobilize your congregation or faith community
CWS challenges people of faith to protect welcome and restore hope.
