Refugees

Dear Church Partners

We (World Relief) are being told that the federal refugee resettlement program is expecting that between now and the end of September we will receive a record number of refugees for our office. With this in mind I am writing to express some opportunities to help welcome and support these newcomers to our community.


Partnership Opportunities: Currently there are many families arriving in High Point and Winston-Salem without feeling the warm welcome of God’s Church, and that is something we hope to change. We are especially in need of more churches in High Point where we have fewer church partners and a higher number of clients.  Please let me know if you would like to discuss how your church can engage with us and feel free to take a look at the volunteer opportunities at: www.worldreliefhighpoint.org/volunteer-opportunities
 
Housing Needed: We are needing some help finding housing for our clients. World Relief is looking for landlords and property management companies to partner with. This is a win-win that provides a place for refugees to start their new lives in the US and provides paying tenants to the property owners. If there is anyone in your church or community that you could connect us with we would really appreciate it. We are also looking for host families, church parsonages, or missionary housing that could be utilized as transitional housing for a few days at a time.
 
Job Openings: We have been blessed with the opportunity to add a new staff position and our Donations Assistant has been promoted, so we are currently hiring for his position. This person will assist the Resource Coordinator in managing donations and preparing homes for our clients. This job involves a lot of lifting and moving furniture and supplies. This is a full time position with benefits. If you know anyone who may be interested please encourage them to apply through the World Relief career page at: http://www.worldrelief.org/careers
 
Thank you for your time, and please let me know how I can serve you and your church.
Blessings,
