The mission of Church World Services is to, Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, comfort the aged, and shelter the homeless. Part of this mission includes The Integration Assistance Program which provides assistance to eligible refugees and entrants to effectively resettle and become economically self-sufficient in as short a time as possible. Services available through the Integration Assistance program include information and referral services, community education, outreach services, and short-term case management services. Volunteers with Church World Service will participate in our Refugee Mentor Program with the goal of promoting civic and social engagement and support individual and vocational advancement. Volunteers are needed to develop a relationship with refugees with the aim of providing support, guidance, friendship, opportunities to learn life and career skills, and to assist them to become self-sufficient and integrated members of US society.
