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 through volunteers and by the financial assistance of many individuals and our local partners.

We are expanding services to Thursday and evenings in 2020, so this is a great time to visit VOR to explore possibilities!
If you represent a business, university, church, or community group interested in helping refugees, contact Joe Guidotti at (714) 277-6843 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer opportunities to church attendees to demonstrate God’s love in tangible ways by treating newcomers to the US with loving kindness and giving them a hand up, in the same manner that God freely gives His grace.
