Help provide urgent basic needs for arriving and welcomed refugees!


This fiscal year we will welcome 440 refugees compared with 135 in the previous year. They arrive from countries such as Syria, DRC, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Belarus, Venezuela, Sudan, Somalia, Nicaragua, Ivory Coast, Congo, and Burma.

Your generous support will be put to work immediately to provide housing and utilities for our clients with high vulnerabilities, including single mothers and those with severe medical issues.


CWS Harrisburg supports our region's refugees as they resettle, integrate, and thrive through programs and projects that encourage self-sufficiency.
