We have one goal: building a world where there is enough for all.
Our office is a branch of the Church World Service global organization. CWS began in 1946 in the aftermath of World War II. We are a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement, and disaster.
In Virginia, refugee resettlement forms the basis of our work. CWS Harrisonburg empowers new neighbors as they rebuild their lives in safety and security. With the help of local individuals, organizations, and faith groups we are creating a stronger, more diverse community with opportunities for all to thrive.
