Employment for Refugees

World Relief Moline seeks to aid refugees in finding employment upon arrival in the Quad Cities. As part of our employment program, WR-M assists refugees in gaining employment through individual case management, job skills training, and ESL (English as a Second Language) classes through BlackHawk College.

WR-M partners with local employers to meet community workforce needs. Refugees arrive in the Quad Cities with varying skill levels; some are highly educated professionals while many others are skilled laborers. Refugees come to America at the invitation of the U.S. government; they are not only ready, but legally able to work immediately and indefinitely.

Are you a local employer? World Relief may be able to meet your needs.   

Free Employment Services & Fully Documented Workers We'll introduce you to the motivated individuals who have gained a reputation for stellar performance in local industries. Our candidates are internationals whom the U.S. government has cleared for permanent residence and work authorization. Refugees have demonstrated a remarkable work ethic that will bolster your workforce.

Employee Retention World Relief helps you retain your new employees by offering them extensive job counseling before and after hire. We thoroughly prescreen our candidates in order to provide you with the best applicants.
