CWS Durham welcomes refugees and immigrants from around the world into lives of freedom, hope and opportunity in North Carolina’s Triangle – Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill – connecting them with community resources to meet immediate needs and to promote long-term self sufficiency.

CWS offers case management services, assistance with employment, English classes, and immigration legal services. CWS made a total of 212 refugee job placements with 74 different Triangle employers within the past year. Volunteers and community partners are always welcome to assist CWS with helping refugees and immigrants integrate into the Triangle community.

The CWS Durham office is one of 35 CWS local resettlement offices and affiliates across the United States.  CWS is one of nine national agencies that resettle refugees to the U.S. in a public/private partnership with the U.S. government.  Since 1946, CWS has helped more than 500,000 refugees and 300,000 Cuban and Haitian entrants begin new lives in the U.S. 

CWS, a global humanitarian agency working to eradicate hunger and poverty, also supports sustainable grassroots development, helps communities respond to disasters, and promotes public policies that contribute to building a world where there is enough for all.
