For the first time since World War II, there are more than 68.5 million displaced people worldwide, including more than 25.4 million refugees. From the moment they arrive in their new communities, refugee clients receive care, hospitality, and assistance from professional affiliate staff and from the hundreds of generous church volunteers who welcome the stranger through this ministry each year.
Partners in Welcome is a network of individuals, groups, and organizations coming together to build a community of support and solidarity for welcoming newcomers to our country. Learn more at episcopalmigrationministries.org/partnersinwelcome
