• Get paid to set up refugee apartments!

    Help make incoming refugees feel welcome by setting up their first home in the U.S.! We are looking for passionate people, at least 18 years of age, to join our contract worker team.

  • We have raised the bar for Good Neighbor Teams!

    Good Neighbor Teams (GNTs) are groups of four to twelve people that partner with specific refugees in extensive friendship and ministry. They also help them adjust to the U.S. There is now step-by-step protocols and trainings for GNTs. Check it out by clicking this slide, or contact Kaylee Baker, kbaker@wr.org, for more information.

  • Monthly Volunteer Orientations

    Volunteers are required to attend a volunteer orientation in order to serve newcomers through World Relief of the Triangle. Additionally, anyone interested in learning more about WRT are welcome to attend. Orientations occur (in general) the first Wednesday of the month. RSVP to this month’s orientation to Kaylee Baker, kbaker@wr.org.

  • The Stand Together Project

    Impact the daily lives of newcomers by giving $29/month. Your financial contribution will empower leaders in the newcomer community, equip and train volunteers to serve healthily and kickstart development initiatives. Follow the link and select “Durham NC/Stand Together” to start empowering lives today.  

Changed Lives

Volunteers often say that their relationships with refugees have impacted their own lives just as much or more than they had hoped to impact the lives of refugees.   Hear the story of how one volunteer has experienced this through serving a family and how you can get involved.

The nations are living in our backyards.

"God is taking the Gospel and he's using it to bring the nations in. Our focus has to be to those who are on the outside ... refugees from all over the world are coming and living right in our backyard ... when you see a situation in which the nations are brought to you, that ought to catch the attention of the church." -- Pastor J.D. Greear
