World Relief Spokane is committed to engaging with churches, individuals, groups, and organizations to see the Spokane community become a welcoming and thriving city. Through the development of relationships and partnerships with our US born and foreign born residents, we seek to engage in deeper conversations, exploration of shared values, concerns and solutions. Our engagement staff are available to speak to groups and organizations to share information about refugees and refugee resettlement as well as provide education and ways to create greater community understanding and discover avenues toward mutual support.
With the help of our local community partners we are able to serve the vulnerable in our community together.
Our community partners are listed below:
