About HIAS

Location:

333 Seventh Avenue, 16th floor, New York, NY 10001, US

Mission Statement

HIAS stands for a world in which refugees find welcome, safety, and freedom.

HIAS is an international nonprofit organization that protects refugees in 14 countries across five continents, rescuing people whose lives are in danger for being who they are.

We protect the most vulnerable refugees, helping them build new lives and reuniting them with their families in safety and freedom.

We also advocate for the protection of refugees to ensure that displaced people are treated with the dignity they deserve.

Guided by our Jewish values and history, we bring more than 130 years of expertise to our work with refugees. Since 1881, HIAS has assisted more than 4,500,000 people worldwide.

Description

HIAS protects refugees--including women and children, and ethnic, religious, and sexual minorities--whose lives are in danger for being who they are.

Guided by our Jewish values and history, we help refugees rebuild their lives in safety and advocate to ensure that all displaced people are treated with dignity, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or place of birth.

International Aid

Our international programs protect and assist refugees, safeguarding them from violence and providing services such as trauma counseling, art therapy, legal advice, and humanitarian assistance. We work closely with a number of partners, including the US government, UN agencies, and a host of non-governmental organizations.

Immigration & Refugee Resettlement

Through our domestic programs, we provide refugees entering the United States with information, training, and expert advice on immigration law and procedures.

We assist during the resettlement process by partnering with an affiliate network spanning 30 cities across the U.S. to ensure that the community-based organizations providing refugees with services such as English classes and vocational training have the tools they need to help refugees successfully adapt to life in the United States.

Advocacy

Our advocacy work in Washington, D.C. educates Washington policy makers on issues impacting refugees and asylum seekers and promotes fair and comprehensive immigration reform.
