Baltimore-Based World Relief to Lay Off 140, Close Glen Burnie Office After Refugee Decision

World Relief, a Baltimore-based non-profit that helps resettle refugees, said Wednesday it will lay off more than 140 staff after the Trump administration’s decision to allow in fewer refugees.

World Relief will close five offices across the country, including one in Glen Burnie. The organization employed 741 people in 2014, according to its latest tax filing. It is unclear how many are employed in Glen Burnie and if any Baltimore employees are laid off.
