ECAR was founded in 2015 as a response to Pope Francis’ call on every parish to host one refugee family. We are a non-profit entity under the Center for Principled Problem Solving at Guilford College. We provide the best practices on how colleges and universities around the globe can become a refuge by following our process of hosting refugees on campus grounds and assisting them in resettlement. At Guilford College, we temporarily host refugees in a permanent residence dedicated to ECAR.

Guilford College students, faculty, and staff welcome newcomers to Greensboro!
