World Relief operates through 25 offices across the United States. Working in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, World Relief and our local church partners welcome and resettle thousands of refugees referred by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to the United States each year. Local offices help refugees secure housing, employment and education. In addition, we provide immigration legal service to refugees and others who have immigrated to the United States, offering legal clinics and counseling, guiding refugees and immigrants along the path towards U.S. citizenship.

Refugee Resettlement

At World Relief, we consider the refugees in our community some of the most vulnerable among us. We work to meet their needs by providing compassionate and holistic care from the moment they arrive at the airport through their journey to self-sufficiency. We provide vital services that include preparing their new home with furniture and basic household items, arranging medical visits, assisting in the acquisition of refugee benefits, enrolling in ESL classes, providing a thorough orientation to life in America, and providing job skills and employment services.

Immigration Legal Services

Maneuvering through the United States immigration system is a complicated and long-term process. Refugees can jump through a number of legal hoops to ensure they maintain their legal status here in the United States, can reunite with family members left behind, and gain access to economic and educational opportunities. World Relief offers legal support to refugees to help them through this process.
