Mission Statement

BACKGROUND:

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a leading, non-sectarian non-profit organization providing emergency relief, protection, rehabilitation assistance, resettlement services, and advocacy for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict.

Description

IRC SAN JOSE:

As one of the IRC's 25 domestic resettlement offices, the IRC San Jose office works to assist refugees in rebuilding their lives and reuniting families in Santa Clara County. Since opening its doors in 1979, the San Jose office has served as the gateway to over 20,000 refugees, who through their own unique cultures and talents, have helped to build a stronger community. A committed staff of professionals and volunteers provide essential resettlement services to refugee families, providing them with the resources and tools to start over and regain control of their lives. Services include meeting basic needs, orientation, referrals to local resources, job placement and community participation activities.
