We will be holding our April Volunteer Training online. This training is open to the public, but spots are limited to 25. Our volunteer training equips participants with skills for communicating and connecting cross-culturally in ways that are dignifying and mutually transformational.

Send a We Care Package
**Must be a background checked WR Volunteer**
We invite our volunteers to say "We Care" to their immigrant, refugee, and survivor neighbors by sending them a We Care Package! This is a wonderful way to show love and hospitality in a time of anxiety and separation. These care packages are not charity, but rather an opportunity to brighten someone’s day and say, “We care!” To learn more, click here.
