Supporting Afghan Refugees

There are a number of incredible organizations that are currently working to assist Afghan refugees as they resettle in the United States. Our community can best help during this time by providing the assistance and resources these organizations need to continue doing their work, whether it is through volunteering our time or by donating. Below is a non-comprehensive list of organizations doing this work. If there is an organization you are aware of that is not listed, please email [email protected] to inquire about adding them to this list.

  • Refugee One has a waitlist for volunteers and is accepting donations, both monetary and material.
  • World Relief Chicagoland is experiencing a high volume of volunteers, so they may take 8-10 days to provide next steps after you sign up. They are also accepting donations.



  • Afghan Health Initiative is accepting donations to support resettling Afghan refugees with housing, emergency finances, healthcare, and overall resettlement assistance.
  • Refugee Women’s Alliance is looking for both donations and volunteers to support resettling refugees.
