Have you logged your volunteer hours? 
As a non-profit, recording volunteer hours is essential to the funding and impact of our programs. Unfortunately, only 1/3 of our volunteers log time and mileage. Volunteer Hours are valued at $24.69 an hour and help us raise a cash match for refugee programs. By logging your hours, you're helping us servie more people in more ways - thank you!
A great way to partner with WR Triad is by praying with and for us! This month, we're seeking prayer for...
  • the eyes and hearts of U.S. leadership to be open and welcoming towards vulnerable refugees
  • the staff and clients in our Anti-Human Trafficking program as they manage high case loads
  • our upcoming World Relief Community Festival this Friday - that we would have a good turn out, many opportunities to build relationships, safety, and good weather
The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. - Psalm 34:17
We'll be connecting several newly arrived refugees and survivors of human trafficking to housing over the next few weeks. We're in urgent need of household items to give these families a warm welcome!

*We're grateful for any items you can donate from the list at the link! We currently don't have capacity to receive items not included in the list. Donations can be shipped to us through Amazon or dropped off at our Winston or High Point locations (including at our Community Festival this Friday!). Thank you for helping us create a welcoming home for our new arrivals!
The Power of Your Voice 

Last month, we learned that the Trump administration is considering allowing zero refugees to resettle in the US in 2020. You can speak out in support of the refugee resettlement program by writing or calling your members of congress.
