Guided by the principles of human compassion and dignity, Refugee Services of Texas welcomes refugees, immigrants, and other displaced peoples and supports them in integrating and thriving in their new communities.
Founded in 1978, Refugee Services of Texas (RST) is a social-service agency dedicated to providing assistance to refugees and other displaced persons fleeing persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group - as well as to the communities that welcome them. RST provides services to hundreds of refugees, asylees, survivors of human trafficking, and related vulnerable populations from over 30 different countries of origin each year. Originating in Dallas, RST now has service centers in Amarillo, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Rio Grande Valley.
Refugee Services of Texas was founded in 1978 and have served almost 20,000 individuals from more than 30 countries, helping them integrate into a new home.
Last year alone, RST resettled 800 individuals, over 40% of all refugees resettled in Texas. Consistently, RST resettles around 3% of all refugees who come to the US - about one out of every 30 people.
