Welcoming the Stranger. Rebuilding Lives. Building Strong Community.  

Refugees and immigrants bravely leave behind everything familiar to seek safety for their families and the
chance for a new start. At World Relief Upstate SC, we partner with the local church and volunteers to
come alongside these new neighbors and help them move from the chaos of war and persecution
to stability in their new home giving them a foundation for future generations to thrive. 


How we help

World Relief Upstate SC has worked to mobilize the local church and community to serve
and resettle refugees in the Greenville and Spartanburg areas since 2015. Our dedicated staff and volunteers assist newly arriving refugees with initial resettlement, employment and job training opportunities, English speaking skills, and school registration and placement.
