World Relief Minnesota
World Relief Minnesota is an affiliate office of World Relief Corporation, a non-profit agency that resettles refugees in the United States through a contract with U.S. Department of State. Our office currently resettles about 300 refugees per year in the Twin Cities. Staff provide social services for refugees including, initial reception and housing, employment services, cash assistance, and wrap around services for the elderly.
I have oversight of staff and programs as well as a principal part in recruiting volunteers and donors to support the cause of the refugee. Much of this focus is on empowering the local church to serve and befriend refugeees. In addition, I fill the role of the chief executive for the agency with a staff of approximately 15 people and 400+ volunteers.
