The International Rescue Committee provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination. In Richmond, the IRC helps them rebuild their lives.
The International Rescue Committee is one of the leading providers of services for refugees, asylees and asylum seekers, victims of trafficking and other vulnerable immigrants in the United States. Across the country, each year, the IRC serves over 35,000 individuals with an array of services aimed at helping them to survive, reclaim control of their future and strengthen their communities.
We measure our progress on this mission by assessing improvements in the long-term outcomes of the women, men, girls and boys that we serve-their health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and empowerment. We want to achieve our goal while we deliver the greatest impact for the most people at the lowest cost, and so are committed to constantly strengthening the effectiveness of our programs, responsiveness to clients and communities, and to reach more people with timely evidence-based assistance.
