FUNDING FOR REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES
World Relief is one of nine refugee resettlement agencies in the United States contracted with the State Department. While governmental grants cover a portion of the expenses, they do not come near to covering the entire cost of refugee resettlement. The success of the programs rely on the cash and in-kind donations, and volunteer hours of individuals, churches, foundations, and donors.
World Relief Sacramento is responsible for providing every refugee with the following basic services defined and mandated in our Cooperative Agreement with the State Department. These services are referred to as “Core Services" and are completed during the 90-day official resettlement period. World Relief can refer some Core Services to other institutions. You can reference a list of these Core Services in our Volunteer Handbook.
