We receive limited funds per refugee to care for them for ninety days. With this money, we pay their rent and utilities and buy anything else that they may need. Because this money does not last long, we rely heavily upon the generosity of donors to adequately launch refugees into their new lives. If you would like to help, please use this link to make a secure donation via our website. If you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to “World Relief,” write “Garden Grove” on the memo line, and mail it to Glen Peterson at World Relief Garden Grove, 13121 Brookhurst. Suite G, Garden Grove, CA 92843. If you have any questions, please contact Glen at 714-210-4730, ext. 101 or

Furnish A Home 

As we set up apartments for the use of newly arriving refugee families, we are constantly in need of good used furniture. Due to limited space, we have to restrict donations to the most needed basic items. These include couches, kitchen tables and chairs, coffee tables, dressers, dinnerware, and blankets.

Because many jobs in Southern California are not accessible by bus and train, we love to receive donated vehicles for our refugees. If you would like to donate a vehicle, please email Glen Peterson at
