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 understand 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 citizenship for all undocumented workers and people.
