Description

World Relief Sacramento has been resettling refugees since 1989. Over the last 27 years, we have resettled over 30,000 refugees into the Sacramento region. These new neighbors came from the Former Soviet Union, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Myanmar, and now Syria. World Relief Sacramento is contracted by the Department of State to facilitate the resettlement of refugees. Since the official resettlement period between World Relief and the Department of State is only for a refugee’s initial 90 days, we must work closely with other service providers and the local community.

- Translating (Arabic, Farsi, Russian preferred)
