Arrive Ministries, formally World Relief MN, is an organization of passionate individuals who apply their expertise to helping resettle refugees in MN. Many of the staff consider it their life purpose to work there, and this is very evident in the strong efforts they take to keep donors aware of their successes as well as their needs. Several staff members have served in other countries and visited refugee camps, so they can empathize well with the refugees they meet. They also serve as liaisons and advocates between the refugees and the Minnesotans who might feel concern over internationals moving into their neighborhoods. They successfully walk the sometimes-difficult line of helping enough to get refugees on their feet and over-assisting; the results is that refugees are not dependent on Arrive and have all the tools they need for live in MN. If I were a refugee coming to MN, after facing much trauma and displacement, I would be so blessed to be in their hands.

As a donor and as a volunteer I feel appreciated when the executive director makes personal connections with me over social media, with hand-written notes, and conversations and greetings at events. I trust them as experts in their field to advise me as I volunteer and to use my donations where needed most. Arrive ministries is doing a great job serving the refugee community and those who volunteer with its members.
