World Relief

World Relief is a global Christian humanitarian organization that is fighting for change that lasts, right here in the U.S. and across the globe. We bring sustainable solutions to the world’s greatest problems – disasters, extreme poverty, violence, oppression, and mass displacement.

In Chicagoland, we come alongside refugees and other immigrants in vulnerable situations as they rebuild their lives in the United States. Our key program areas work together to help low-income immigrant and refugee families build meaningful relationships, access needed resources, and overcome cultural, economic, language, legal, and social barriers so that every family can thrive.
