World Relief Miami

World Relief began in 1944 as "War" Relief. World Relief has grown to become an international organization whose calling is to stand for the vulnerable.

View our manifesto video here: Every second of every day children are orphaned by disease, women are widowed by conflicts, families are devastated by natural disasters and refugees are relocated to new countries. These are the heartbreaking stories of the vulnerable. We believe God has equipped the church - the most diverse social network on the planet - to be at the center of these stories, leveraging time, energy and resources to join the vulnerable in their time of need. We practice principles of transformational development to empower local churches in the United States and around the world so they can serve the vulnerable in their communities. With initiatives in education, health, child development, agriculture, food security, anti-trafficking, immigrant services, micro-enterprise, disaster response and refugee resettlement, we work holistically with the local church to stand for the sick, the widow, the orphan, the alien, the displaced, the devastated, the marginalized, and the disenfranchised. In our own backyard and around the globe, we stand with individuals and communities through the process of healing, reconciliations, transformation and empowerment. Whatever it takes, and wherever it takes us, we are faithful to our call. Join us and stand for the vulnerable.

Mission: Mission: Empowering the local Church to serve the most vulnerable. Vision: In community with the local Church, World Relief envisions the most vulnerable people transformed economically, socially, and spiritually. Values: The Example of Jesus as we serve those who are suffering from poverty and injustice, regardless of color, belief, or gender, as part of God's plan to redeem, reconcile, and restore the world. We seek to follow Jesus by living holy, humble, and honest lives individually and corporately. The Local Church as a primary agent of bringing peace, justice, and love to a broken world. The integrated "word" and "deed" dimensions of God's mandate, as evidenced through the church's integral, or transformational, mission are necessary to bringing reconciliation and restoration to God, others, and the environment. People whether staff, volunteers, clients, beneficiaries, donors, and partners, as important actors in bringing peace, love, and justice. We recognize and affirm World Relief as a multicultural organization and seek to understand and respect the multiplicity of cultures among us. As we seek change in the world, we recognize that we, too, are changed, by those we serve. Excellence/Continuous Improvement in all our program initiatives and support services, following best practices and standards in a manner that is sustainable to the community from a spiritual, social, and economic perspective. We also seek to apply our human and financial resources in such ways that maximize impact and sustain benefits to the greatest number of people. Empowerment by prioritizing the leadership and participation of those we serve, whether people, churches, or local institutions, as critical to creating and sustaining change. We seek to catalyze a movement of worldwide volunteers to multiply impact, and we value capacity-building as a means towards that end. Partnership by seeking, facilitating, and promoting collaboration among all stakeholders, including local governments, the worldwide church, mission agencies, other NGO's, and the business community, recognizing partnership as essential to serving the most vulnerable. We believe each expression of the worldwide Church has a unique and interdependent role in bringing peace and justice to the world. Prayer as the priority and foundation to accomplishing our mission.

In celebration of #RefugeeAwarenessMonth we will be highlighting the "Journey of a Refugee":
Step #1: Homeland: Refugees flee their homeland because of persecution.
Step #2: Shelter: Refugees will seek shelter somewhere else. 1 out of 3 refugees live in a refugee camp.
Step #3: Interview: Refugees entering the US are interviewed by the UNHCR and the Department of Homeland Security. Only those who can prove they are escaping persecution are eligible for entry.
Step #4: Arrival: Each arriving refugee is assigned to an agency to provide basic services during his or her initial resettlement period.
Step #5: Resettlement: For a refugee to achieve self-sufficiency, newly arrived refugees must address both initial and long-term needs. This is where the Local Church steps in and lives out our mission to serve the most vulnerable.

World Relief -- #WagePeace

As we think about Jesus restoring "Shalom" to all people and all nations one day, would you pray for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven? Peace is God’s desire for humanity. Throughout the Scriptures, three themes are paramount: reconciliation and forgiveness, the responsibility to care for others and the value of human life. God’s desire is for people to live in harmony as a way of honoring him. Hebrews 12:14 says, "Make every effort…

General information

In Miami - where 80 percent of the population is foreign-born or US born minor children of foreign born parents- World Relief and churches are showing refugees the love of Christ through a range of practical programs offering assistance and support. Miami is the 5th poorest large city in the USA but some very wealthy areas cloud the truth and keep the ranking from being much worse. World Relief offers education and outreach services to combat the modern day slavery known as Human Trafficking that the poor can easily fall into. It is necessary to teach people how to be alert for and avoid the traps of this great evil. The church is the place to start and enable it to be a light in the community. World Relief's Miami office helps refugees from numerous troubled nations, including Cuba, Haiti, Venezuela, Colombia and Nicaragua - working closely with local churches to help refugees find employment. The goal is rapid self-sufficiency and paying taxes….not on-going public assistance. World Relief offers a Matched Savings Program for the low income to save with a $2 for $1 match for the down payment towards the purchase of a home or to start a small business. This is a great program to give people a lift out of poverty and start them on their way to the American dream. The church is helping the poor! In addition our Health Connect program helps low income families without insurance to get needed medical care either free or low-cost. World Relief is helping many refugees navigate the complex immigration system, eventually leading to naturalization for those wishing to pursue U.S. citizenship. World Relief and the International Bible Society are partnering on a NLT Spanish “Bible for the Immigrant”.
