Mission Statement

Since 1982, RefugeeOne has resettled over 17,000 refugees from every major world crisis. RefugeeOne helps these refugees secure housing, learn English, find jobs, acclimate to American culture, obtain medical care, enroll their children in school, and apply for citizenship. Our ultimate goal is to help refugee families become self-reliant in as little as 6-12 months. With a staff of 42 people - most of whom are refugees and immigrants themselves - RefugeeOne provides quality, culturally- and linguistically-appropriate services to refugees at no cost.


As the largest full-service resettlement agency in Illinois, RefugeeOne annually helps approximately 2,500 refugees and immigrants rebuild and improve their lives. For more information, please visit www.refugeeone.org

It's for a good cause and we need to provide help for the refugees that need assistance transitioning.
