Mission Statement

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. For over 75 years, we have offered lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from conflict or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, the IRC leads the way from harm to home.

Description

Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee is the leading nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection and resettlement services for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. IRC is committed to freedom, human dignity and self-reliance. This commitment is reflected in well-planned resettlement assistance, global emergency relief, rehabilitation and advocacy for refugees.

The International Rescue Committee's Washington, DC Resettlement Office has been resettling refugees in the Washington, DC area since 1975. Our mission is to help newly arrived refugees become independant and self-sufficient by assisting them with services such as temporary financial assistance, job search and placement, immigration services, cultural and community orientation, and referrals for English language study, health, education and social services.
