Mission Statement

CWS works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world.


CWS is a global organization that is dedicated to helping refugees around the world especially those entering the United States. Each year CWS helps families resettle to the United States, many of which are fleeing war-torn countries and political persecution. South Florida is a major destination for refugees and asylees fleeing from Haiti, Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela and other places across the globe such as Iraq, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Iran. With your support we can help them start new lives here in the United States.

CWS’s South Florida offices have been providing essential refugee resettlement and immigration service since 1960. We provide year-round food and shelter, legal and immigration services, job placement, cultural orientation, tangible donations, and monetary support, out of our 3 locations located in Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach County.

Our organization welcomes all forms of groups, organizations, businesses, and religious assemblies to help us reach our vision of " working to be an effective, impact-oriented leader in refugee and immigrant protection, assistance, and integration" .

I volunteered at CWS as a project to a class. I had an amazing experience. This is an organization that really cares for the people they are helping and re devoted to their cause. They need volunteers for many activities, I participated in the orientation of refugees and office work. They guided me through every step of the way and I felt I was doing good to my society. I will completely recommend this organization to anybody who is looking for an opportunity to give back to the community and will totally have fun!
