Co-sponsorship is a unique opportunity for a community group, such as a church or club, to come together with CWS to support a refugee family. This is more involved than volunteering, where the group supports that family during their first few months. Training and guidance is provided before, during, and after. The goal is to help the refugee family achieve self-sufficiency which will be done through day-to-day provision of services. These services will taper off as the family becomes more self-sustaining.
