Mission Statement

The IRC provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited to resettle in community across the county by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many refugees have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane int he U.S. with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination. In Northern California (offices in Oakland, Sacramento, San Jose, and Turlock) and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps refugees rebuild their lives.

Description

The IRC Northern Calfiornia network, which includes offices in Oakland, Sacramento, San Jose, Turlock and Modesto, currently operates several highly effective programs designed to meet a wide variety of refugee and asylee newcomers' needs. We provide our clients with early resettlement support, English language classes, job placement assistance, one-on-one mentoring, community orientation, and immigration services. All programs are designed to help refugees become self-sufficient and productive members of their new communities.

Each local office has great volunteer and intern need to help make our program succesful. Consider volunteering your time to make THE difference in the life of a newly arrived refugee.
