Exodus World Service mobilizes the Christian community to welcome and befriend refugees. EWS does this by educating churches about refugee ministry, connecting volunteers with refugees through practical service projects, and equipping leaders to advocate on behalf of refugees.
World Relief began offering services in DuPage County in 1979 and then opened an additional office in Aurora in 1999. We are a Christ-centered organization that partners with local churches and works with hundreds of individuals as well as community groups to offer a comprehensive range of services to refugees and immigrants living in DuPage and Kane Counties
Through the Love Your Neighbor Ministry, our church helps refugees from all over the world by collecting items for a Care Pack and delivering them to refugee families in the Dupage/Aurora area. Also individual members of our church are volunteering to pick up new refugee arrivals at the airport, teach ESL, take them to doctor appointments, tutor for the Citizenship Test or be New Neighbor/New Friendship Partners for refugees and their families.
