Get Involved



Refugees often arrive with little to no English, limited familiarity with U.S. culture, and no financial resources. Their resettlement journey is long and full of challenges. As a volunteer you can support our new neighbors as they rebuild their lives, and help us continue the over 40-year tradition of welcoming refugees to North Carolina

Community Sponsorship

Welcome newly arrived refugees to Wilmington through community sponsorship. As a community sponsor, your group of 7-10 becomes a partner with CWS to greet a refugee family at the airport, assist them in securing and furnishing initial housing, connect them with local services, and show them all of the things that make our community so special!
