Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a leading nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection, and resettlement services for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. Since 1960, the Miami resettlement office has resettled more than 10,000 refugees, providing them a fresh start and opportunities to use their greatest resources—their motivation, their skills and their experiences—to become independent and self-sufficient new Americans. Currently, the office resettles and/or provides assistance to over 1,000 refugees, asylees, and victims of human trafficking per year in Miami.
The IRC-Miami office endows refugees with a range of services to support their early survival in the U.S. and put them on the road to independence. These services include temporary financial assistance, job search & placement, immigration services, cultural & community orientation, and referrals regarding english courses, health, education, and social services. Our goal is that refugees achieve self-sufficiency and maintain high morale.
