Coordinated by the CWS Durham and Greensboro offices, the CARE Program seeks to pair groups of dedicated community sponsors with resettled refugees in their communities to support their quest for upward mobility and full integration. Check out the tabs below to learn more about this program!
Although CWS provides several avenues of support for refugees to become self-sufficient, many refugees remain in low-paying jobs long after they arrive in the US. The CARE Program seeks to address this gap by forming community groups— CARE Groups— who will support refugees financially and socially in their efforts towards financial security and overall thriving.
CARE groups will consist of 5-10 people committed to a four-to-six month long partnership with a refugee in their community. Community volunteers will participate in two hours of interactive training and provide financial and social support so that their refugee partner can fully engage their goals.
