Who We Are

We’re an organization of more than 50 volunteer staff and 5,000 global volunteers who are committed to serving refugee families with love and dignity. We focus on filling in the gaps to provide critical aid to refugee families in Greece, Jordan, Cyprus, Yemen, the US/Mexico border, and beyond. Specifically, our aid falls into three programs: Welcome Baby, Community Development, and Emergency Response.

Our Programs

Welcome Baby

This program provides families with the items they need to care for their newborn: a baby bed, clean diapers, a baby carrier, a stroller, onesies, towels, soap, a handmade toy or blanket, and sanitary pads for mom.

Community Development

We work with refugee camps to help support residents by bringing dignity and normalcy through quality of life initiatives such as women-friendly spaces, early childhood learning centers, community gardens, and more.

Emergency Response

Our teams on the ground identify emergency needs so that we are able to fund and distribute in real time. These items include sleeping bags, bug spray, fresh food, emergency hygiene items, and more.

From Our Donors & Volunteers

“It’s difficult to watch the global refugee crisis and not do something about it. Volunteering with Carry the Future allows me to directly impact the most vulnerable. It’s life changing; we are able to directly support refugees in need and give voice to the voiceless.”

“I volunteer with Carry the Future because I can directly make an impact in the lives of refugee families. These experiences have made my world smaller in a beautiful way. I am a vehicle for good. It means a lot to make a difference on behalf of this organization.”
