We want to partner with you to support your business growth. You can save thousands of dollars in marketing and temp agency bills by choosing World Relief Seattle to provide you with excellent employees.

Why hire a refugee?

At World Relief Seattle, we prepare refugees for employment and self-sufficiency in the United States. Refugees come to the United States with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. In addition to having diverse skills, all refugees are qualified, authorized, and reliable.

Our refugee clients are qualified for your business because they are pre-screened to meet your staffing needs. World Relief Seattle employment specialists work individually with each refugee to evaluate their skills and experience and make an appropriate employment match.

Our refugee clients are authorized to work for you because they have legal status in the United States. They are authorized to work immediately and are E-Verify ready.

Our refugee clients are reliable because they are hard-working and loyal employees. Refugees receive support from World Relief to ensure on-the-job success, and work diligently to sustain their employment for personal self-sufficiency.

Who is a refugee?

As defined by the United Nations, a refugee is a person who flees his or her country due to a well-founded fear of persecution because of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a social group. Because they cannot return to their native country, refugees are legally accepted into the United States through a resettlement program. World Relief Seattle helps refugees build their new life in America. Employment is an essential building block in that process.
