Refugee resettlement - Participating denominations

WW2 refugees

The Church World Service Immigration and Refugee Program was created by several Protestant denominations that came together at the end of World War II, in an effort to respond to the needs of refugees in Europe. Participating denominations work in partnership with local affiliate offices to determine a sponsor for each refugee case, seeking to involve their congregations to the maximum extent possible. Once the refugees arrive, the denominations stand ready to assist the local affiliate offices if any emergency situations develop.
