About International Rescue Committee

Location:

730 NW 107th Avenue, Suite 100, Miami, FL 33172, US

Mission Statement

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

Description

Since 1960, the Miami resettlement office has resettled more than 10,000refugees, providing them a fresh start and opportunities to use their greatest resources--their motivation, their skills and their experiences--to become independent and self-sufficient new Americans. Currently, the office resettles and/or provides assistance to over 1,000 refugees, asylees, and victims of human trafficking per year in Miami

The IRC makes sure newly arrived refugees receive:

  • a furnished home
  • help with rent
  • health care
  • nutritious, affordable food
  • English language classes
  • help building job, computer & financial literacy skills
  • education for their children
  • social services and community support
  • legal services toward residency & citizenship
