Mission Statement

International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in more than 50 countries and over 28 U.S. cities, the IRC provides resettlement, education and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people.


Our programs in New York:

  • Resettlement - The resettlement program offers services for refugees within the first 90 days of arrival which include access to safe housing, culturally-appropriate food, health screenings, cultural orientation, referrals for English training, employment assistance and other benefits.
  • Economic Empowerment - The employment services team provides both immediate assistance accessing entry-level positions and long-term support for people to get recertified in their chosen career fields.
  • Education & Learning - Children & Youth programs offer comprehensive academic and social-emotional supports that leverage younger clients’ resilience, talents, and ambitions to help them achieve their full potential. Through our Family Education programs, we promote early self-sufficiency among newly arrived adults, and longer term, ongoing support for continuing education, career development, and citizenship preparation.
  • Immigration - The IRC provides high-quality, low-cost immigration legal services, filing applications and petitions for adjustment of status, Deferred Action for Early Childhood Arrivals (DACA), family reunification, and naturalization applications.
