Serving the vulnerable

We have a commitment at CWS to serve the most vulnerable in our world today. From its earliest beginnings, CWS focused on providing assistance and resettlement services to those displaced by violence and discrimination. Today, we use our expertise in refugee resettlement to assist thousands of refugees on the road to beginning a new life in the United States. We also serve refugees where they are, helping them find safety in both urban and camp locations around the world.
