World Relief Modesto

Organization Description: 

World Relief is an international non-profit relief organization. Our mission is to empower the local Church to serve the most vulnerable.

This year World Relief- Modesto and our network of volunteers and churches are providing resettlement services to 250 refugees fleeing persecution and war in their homelands.

Gradually, we help refugees make the transition to American life, so that one day they will call America home. Since 1979, World Relief has embraced over 200,000 refugees, welcoming them at the airport, helping them find jobs, and extending the hands of friendship.

Volunteers and Churches serve as the hands and feet of Christ and find the lives of the refugees, as well as their own, transformed in the process.

Mission Statement: 

Empower the local Church to serve the most vulnerable

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Every second of every day children are orphaned by disease, women are widowed by conflicts, families are devastated by natural disasters and refugees are relocated to new countries. These are the heartbreaking stories of the vulnerable.

We believe God has equipped the church - the most diverse social network on the planet - to be at the center of these stories, leveraging time, energy and resources to join the vulnerable in their time of need.

We practice principles of transformational development to empower local churches in the United States and around the world so they can serve the vulnerable in their communities. With initiatives in education, health, child development, agriculture, food security, anti-trafficking, immigrant services, micro-enterprise, disaster response and refugee resettlement, we work holistically with the local church to stand for the sick, the widow, the orphan, the alien, the displaced, the devastated, the marginalized, and the disenfranchised.

In our own backyard and around the globe, we stand with individuals and communities through the process of healing, reconciliations, transformation and empowerment.

Whatever it takes, and wherever it takes us, we are faithful to our call.

Join us and stand for the vulnerable.
