With the help of local churches and volunteers, the CWS immigration and refugee office in Lancaster welcomes around 400 individuals each year to central Pennsylvania and aims to help the new arrivals adjust, become successful members of their local neighborhoods.
CWS of Lancaster serves the refugee and immigrant communities of central Pennsylvania. Through hard work and a long-term commitment of support, people who once had no hope are discovering the means of transforming their lives.
We work hand-in-hand with caring churches, organizations and individuals to provide help and homes to refugees, and work to build a community in the U.S. for uprooted people so that they can fashion a better future.
