About Us

Global Connections is a refugee resettlement support center located in Wilmington, North Carolina that enriches the lives of refugees resettling from all over the world. Global Connections operates regular cultural orientation, educational and enrichment services for local refugees. Support our volunteer or donor programs to become a ‘global connector’ and help us make real social change, locally and globally.

Through self-sufficiency programming, and community partnerships/ referrals, we support and ensure the well-being of all individuals and families resettling as refugees in Southeastern North Carolina. Global Connections also provides case management, employment, and resettlement support services. 

Global Connections Resettlement Support Center serves some of Wilmington’s most at risk and impoverished community members, living in displacement from their home country due to war, violence, and/or persecution. We predominantly serve people from Burma, different parts of Africa, Colombia, and Cuba.
