We have one goal: building a world where there is enough for all
After seven decades moving towards this goal, CWS has the faith and experience to know it’s possible. Working around the world, we’ve seen gardens flourishing in barren land. Migrants and refugees finding a home even after every door has been closed. Houses standing strong against nature’s worst disasters. That’s the power of your compassion at work when it links to human resilience.
CWS was born in 1946, in the aftermath of World War II. Today, there are more refugees and displaced people worldwide than at any other time since then.
Today CWS supports refugees and displaced communities around the world through our Immigration and Refugee Program, having resettled nearly half a million refugees since its inception. From the 1950s to the present day, CWS has worked across the United States, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America to support those most in need.
