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 have recently increased in value to $25.43 an hour and help us raise a cash match for refugee programs. By logging your hours, you're helping us serve 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...
  • all those impacted by the historically low Presidential Determination on Refugee Resettlement, including our staff, clients, and our clients' family members overseas - that we would find hope and joy in the midst of uncertainty
  • financial favor as many of our departments are hard at work applying for grants and additional funding to help us grow and continue to meet the needs of those we serve
  • our waitlisted citizenship clients in need of medical waivers that excuse them from the citizenship exam due to medical need - that we may find medical providers who will partner with us to provide waivers at low or no cost
  • our Health and Wellness program staff as they continue to develop innovative and creative solutions to meet client needs, as well as for upcoming garden work days in partnership with local churches
  • our Anti-Human Trafficking program's youth outreach initiative - that youth would be receptive to AHT staff and curriculum 
  • two Anti-Human Trafficking clients as they near the end of their enrollment in case management - that they will experience confidence, security, and healthy independence in this new season 
  • new and deepening partnerships with local churches

    The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. - Psalm 34:17
Ever wonder where a gift to World Relief Triad goes? It goes to a mother from Afghanistan learning computer skills, a high school student from South Sudan preparing for the SAT, a family from Bhutan growing healthy food in our community garden, a grandfather from Iraq studying for his citizenship exam, and to so many of our international neighbors as together we help them rebuild their lives to become thriving members of our community.

By giving monthly, you can easily and conveniently ensure ongoing and consistent support for our international neighbors. Just select, "make this a monthly gift," after clicking the button below. Thank you!
