THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING TO SUPPORT
The Refugee Resettlement Program of Catholic Social Services
“… Jesus was a refugee; he had to flee to save his life, with Saint Joseph and Mary… The number of these brother refugees is growing … forced to leave their homes in order to save their life … Let us be their neighbors … and take concrete steps to reduce their suffering.”
Today, there are over 65 million refugees throughout the world, fleeing religious persecution, torture and execution, war, famine and poverty. They are our brothers and sisters, seeking a safe haven, a new place to call home. Catholic Social Services is heeding the call of Pope Francis in response to this humanitarian crisis by welcoming some of these refugees among us.
The Refugee Resettlement Program of Catholic Social Services welcomes men, women and children fleeing from war torn nations and seeking freedom from oppression and injustice. We provide refugees with the chance to start a new life in the United States by helping them find a permanent home, employment, education and access to medical and social services.
Will you stand with us in welcoming them?
