RESOURCES AND INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19


Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

MONTHLY VOLUNTEER TRAINING HOSTED ONLINE

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. While designed with our volunteers in mind, we welcome anyone who feels they would benefit from the experience and expertise we have to offer, which - we believe - is anyone who has a heart for their refugee, immigrant, and survivor neighbors!

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
