Join us in keeping alive a 40-year tradition of welcome in Greensboro.


Be a resource. Be an advocate.

Be a friend.



Volunteers are vital for helping refugees rebuild their lives in the United States.


You can help welcome refugees and immigrants to our community by joining a Match Team, providing English tutoring, working at our legal services office, and more!


We want your experience to be meaningful for everyone!


Contact our volunteer coordinator Amber Handy at or visit our volunteer page


Monetary gifts make it possible to secure housing, employment, and access to healthcare for new arrivals and to help former refugees naturalize as US citizens. Generosity sustains the mission of welcoming refugees to Greensboro!
You can easily and safely make an online donation or send a check made out to “CWS Greensboro” to 122 N. Elm St., Ste. 607, Greensboro, NC 27401.
Do you have new or gently-used items that you’d like to donate? Check out our donations page to see what household goods that refugees currently need.

Employee Matching Gift Programs

Many businesses and corporations provide their employees with matching gift programs.
You give. They match.
These programs not only double your financial impact, but they expose businesses and other community members to the mission of welcoming refugees.


Here are the steps:


1. Check to see if your employer has a matching gift program.
2. If they do, submit a form requesting that CWS Greensboro be included in the program.
3. Donate through the program and see your generosity multiplied!



Join the CWS #GreaterAs1 advocacy network and start working in Greensboro and North Carolina to advance policies and attitudes that support our refugee neighbors.

Want to really have some fun? Gather support for refugees and immigrants by creating a personal Facebook fundraiser.
