Mission Statement:

Through its Refugee Resettlement Program, CWS Greensboro provides comprehensive case management and employment services aimed at empowering newly arrived refugees to build a foundation for long-term self-sufficiency and success in the U.S. Services for refugees include basic needs support, case management, cultural orientation, health access assistance and intensive job preparation and placement services. CWS Greensboro is also proud to serve the community at large providing citizenship education, immigration legal services and community education and engagement opportunities throughout the year.

Program History:

Church World Service was born in 1946, in the aftermath of World War II. Seventeen denominations came together to form an agency "to do in partnership what none of us could hope to do as well alone." The mission: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, comfort the aged, shelter the homeless.

More than 70 years later the mission remains, though where and how we accomplish it has changed dramatically.

CWS established its Greensboro resettlement office in early 2009, partnering with the local community to provide comprehensive resettlement services to newly arrived refugees through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.
