The Virginia Council of Churches Refugee Resettlement Program is a non profit ministry that partners with area faith groups and service providers to empower refugees and immigrants to become self-sufficient. We seek to make the community aware of and responsive to the needs of newcomers.
The Virginia Council of Churches Refugee Resettlement Program (VCCRRP) was established in 1962 in response to the large number of Cuban refugees entering the United States. The VCCRRP operates as a state employment provider and reception/placement affiliate for Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries. VCCRRP currently resettles refugees from around the world. The Richmond office of the VCCRRP resettles large numbers of African, former Yugoslavian, and Middle Eastern refugees. VCCRRP has resettled refugees from Vietnam, Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Former Yugoslavia, Sudan, Romania, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Liberia, Afghanistan, Turkey, Russia, Cuba, Cambodia, Romania, Poland, Hungary, and Bosnia. In order to serve clients VCCRRP provides English Language Training, and employment based services in addition to an array of resettlement services.
