About Us

CWS-Durham opened its doors in 2009 and continues to welcome refugees and immigrants from around the world into lives of freedom, hope, and opportunity in the Triangle.













Our staff connects new arrivals with community resources and social integration opportunitiesĀ in order to meet their immediate needs as well as promote long-term self-sufficiency as they build new futures in the US.

CWS-Durham provides clients with case management services, immigration legal services, English classes, and assistance with employment. We are heartily supported by volunteers and community partners to welcome refugees and immigrants to the Triangle.
