Volunteer Training

We're excited to announce that we are now an official 501c3 organization and are still doing work supporting refugees in Washtenaw County. Things have been quiet, but we're committed to keeping a ready-to-serve volunteer team to meet the needs of those resettled here in the last few years and stay prepared for future friends. 

We're hosting a volunteer training on Monday, October 29th from 7:00pm - 8:00pm. the training will be held upstairs at Zion Lutheran Church, 1501 W Liberty St. Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

All are welcome at this training, even if you've attended one of the Samaritas/JFS trainings in the past. This can be a good way to reconnect with WRW and get reengaged. If you have never attended a training or been background checked and you would like to have face to face contact with the families we work with, we do ask that you attend a training and complete a Michigan background check (see attached form. If the $10 is an impediment, please let us know). 

Please respond to

  • To RSVP for this training. 

  • If you would like to be trained, but this date doesn't work for you (so that we can gauge the need).  

  • If you've been trained in the past and would like to stay at the top of our list for volunteers.
