About U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) Albany
991 Broadway, Suite 223, Albany, NY 12204, US
To address the needs and rights of persons in forced or voluntary migration worldwide by advancing fair and humane public policy, facilitating and providing direct professional services, and promoting the full participation of migrants in community life.
The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) is a national voluntary agency that contracts with the federal government to resettle refugees from all over the world in welcoming communities throughout the United States. USCRI Albany opened its doors in 2005, and now serves hundreds of refugees each year, helping them connect with the resources and services they need to adapt to their new homes in the Capital Region. Our mission is to help refugees become self-sufficient, contributing members of our community who can again dream of a hopeful future for themselves and their children. We act to defend human rights, promote self-sufficiency and education, and forge community partnerships through a full range of services and programs.
Refugees flee their homes, businesses, farms, and communities in order to escape war and persecution. Some 70,000 refugees come to the United States each year at the invitation of the federal government, seeking a better life for their families. USCRI's Albany Field Office resettles nearly 400 refugees each year in the Capital Region.
