Every family has the right to live in safety and dignity.

CWS has been welcoming refugees and asylum seekers to the United States since the 1940s. And the need is greater now than it has been in decades. From the moment refugee families arrive in the United States, we help meet their needs. We also make sure they have the information and skills they need to thrive.

In the halls of the U.S. Capitol, and in cities and towns across the U.S., we're standing for welcome. We're lifting refugee and immigrant voices to call for inclusive, supportive policies.

When a disaster happens, we also focus on supporting our vulnerable neighbors. Our emergency response efforts include immediate aid like CWS Kits and Blankets as well as a focus on long-term recovery.

In communities across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks provide grants to over 1,600 hunger-fighting agencies each year.

Join the movement to ensure that everyone can have food, voice and a safe place to call home.
