Our Mission, “Putting God’s love into action by assisting the refugee and asylum-seeking community to re-establish and assimilate their lives in the United States.”
Our vision is to effectively fulfill the needs of refugees as we minister to them with the help of local church communities. VOR has developed a number of tools aimed at assisting each refugee family as they re-establish and restart their lives here in America. Each of these tools meet an essential need including spiritual awareness & growth, language, education, financial counseling, housing assistance, career training, employment opportunities and developing a new community within their neighborhood.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” Matthew 28:19
