World Relief's Miami office helps refugees from numerous troubled nations, including Cuba, Haiti, Venezuela, Colombia and Nicaragua - working closely with local churches to help refugees find employment. The goal is rapid self-sufficiency and paying taxes….not on-going public assistance. World Relief offers education and outreach services to combat human trafficking. World Relief offers a Matched Savings Program for the low income to save with a $2 for $1 match for the down payment towards the purchase of a home or to start a small business. This is a great program to give people a lift out of poverty and start them on their way to the American dream. In addition, our Health Connect Program helps low income families without insurance to get needed medical care either free or at a low cost. World Relief is helping many refugees navigate the complex immigration system, eventually leading to naturalization for those wishing to pursue U.S. citizenship.
Empowering the local Church to serve the most vulnerable
In community with the local Church, World Relief envisions the most vulnerable people transformed economically, socially and spiritually.
