RefugeeOne, located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, has a national reputation for its success in assisting refugees fleeing war and persecution as they build new lives.
With the help of 450 volunteers, RefugeeOne walks alongside refugees as they take their first steps on the road to self-reliance: we greet new arrivals at O’Hare Airport, furnish their first apartments, help them learn English, and connect them to their first jobs. However, we recognize that job skills aren’t the only component to success in the United States, which is why we provide mental health care, after-school programming, and community-building services as well. Our ultimate goal is to help refugee families become self-reliant in as little as 6-12 months.
