Established in 1980, World Relief Chicago (WRC) has assisted in the resettlement of over 15,000 refugees. WRC has a globally diverse staff of 30 members fluent in 10+ languages from five continents. We work in close collaboration with community partners and volunteers to come alongside refugees and immigrants on their journey through cultural adjustment with the goal of assisting refugees in becoming self-sufficient in the United States. Our comprehensive resettlement program supports refugees in reaching self-sufficiency in Chicago. We achieve this goal through standard / intensive case management, employment services, English education, and youth services to approximately 400 newly arriving refugees annually. We work with a network of human care providers in Chicago to advocate and strengthen social services for refugees living in the city and surrounding suburbs.
