When refugees are admitted to the United States for resettlement, their travel is arranged 
under a loan program by the International Organization for Migration. Refugees sign a promissory note stating that they will repay the interest-free loans to cover travel costs 
over a pre-determined period. CWS's Immigration and Refugee Program oversees the repayment process for the refugees we resettle. By guiding them through the repayment process, our loan counselors help refugees gain a basic understanding of personal credit literacy.

The Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights(WICIR) is a volunteer-
based group of community members from Washtenaw County who are committed 
to advocating for immigrants rights. We work together in coalition because we un-
derstand that the oppression of one group of people endorses the oppression of 
any group of people, at anytime. 
MISSION:
To provide a culturally sensitive and supportive urgent response to undocumented 
people and their families, educate the targeted and allied communities, impact local governmental policies to empower and protect immigrant community members, and 
to work toward humane national immigration reform that provides a pathway to citi-
zenship for all undocumented workers and people.
