  • Volunteers

    Volunteers play a critical role in helping refugees adjust to life in America. Whether exploring neighborhoods together, going grocery shopping, or building friendships over cups of tea, volunteers accompany refugees as they settle into their new lives. Volunteers often find they receive much more than they give.

  • Refugee Resettlement

    Each year, World Relief Modesto helps hundreds of refugees--victims of war and persecution around the globe--replant their lives in Stanislaus County. World Relief staff, volunteers, and churches walk alongside newcomers, providing support as they adjust to life in their new community. 

  • Community Involvement

    With funding continuing to be cut for English as a Second Language classes, we rely on volunteers and the local community to assist our newcomers in learning English.

Stand With Us

World Relief Modesto mobilizes local churches and volunteers to effectively and passionately serve refugees in the Stanislaus County. We believe God has equipped the church--the most diverse social network--to be at the center of the stories of the vulnerable, leveraging time, energy, and resources to join them in their time of need. World Relief seeks to empower church and community members to Stand for the Vulnerable.
