CWS Lancaster maintains a Donation Hub of supplies for newcomers in need of home items. Here you will find our list of items that we accept as well as our donation policy.


We offer both individual and community/faith group volunteer opportunities!


Invite CWS Lancaster staff to come speak in person or virtually for a business/ organization presentation, Sunday school lesson, sermon, or an educational forum.


Contact your representatives. Sample Script: “I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN] and I urge you to protect refugees and rebuild the U.S. refugee resettlement program by cosponsoring the GRACE Act (S.1088/H.R.2146).”
