Placement and Special Projects Unit

The Placement and Special Projects Unit coordinates with many local, federal and international organizations to manage the process of moving refugees safely and efficiently from camps and processing centers overseas to safe homes in U.S. communities that are prepared to welcome them. The unit also supports local partners in their service provision to clients through targeted awards from ORR and other funding sources.

Engagement Unit

The Engagement Unit engages with churches and dioceses to connect the Episcopal community to our ministry, while also supplying affiliate partners with tools and guidance needed to build support and welcome for refugees in their own communities.

“Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

-Mark 12:31
