About Us

CWS Durham is a local office of Church World Service (CWS), a global humanitarian organization and one of nine refugee resettlement agencies in the United States. Since 2009, we have worked with community partners and volunteers across the Triangle to support refugee and immigrant new arrivals as they build strong, flourishing lives in Durham and the surrounding area. We work to build bridges between refugees and immigrants and the greater community, and equip our clients for long-term success.

Our services include:

CWS Durham has resettled over 2,000 refugees since opening ten years ago. We are proud to stand with our refugee and immigrant neighbors, and we hope that you will stand with us too!
