California's capital city hosts many newly-arrived refugees from conflict-riddled regions of our world. Since 1989, World Relief Sacramento and partner churches have welcomed over 27,000 newcomers (and counting!) with compassion - helping the vulnerable to adapt to life in a completely different culture. Our church-centered ministries help refugees learn English, grasp American culture, find employment and access essential services.
We practice principles of transformational development to empower local churches in the United States and around the world so they can serve the vulnerable in their communities. With initiatives in education, health, child development, agriculture, food security, anti-trafficking, immigrant services, micro-enterprise, disaster response and refugee resettlement, we work holistically with the local church to stand for the sick, the widow, the orphan, the alien, the displaced, the devastated, the marginalized and the disenfranchised.
In our own backyard and around the globe, we stand with individuals and communities through the process of healing, reconciliations, transformation and empowerment.
Whatever it takes, and wherever it takes us, we are faithful to our call.
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.
