The International Rescue Committee (IRC)is the leading nonsectarian, voluntary agency worldwide. The agency, founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, is committed to freedom, human dignity, and self-reliance. This commitment is reflected in well-planned global emergency relief, rehabilitation, resettlement assistance and advocacy for refugees.
Established in July 1999, IRC-Baltimore has resettled approximately 700 refugees of all ages and from over 20 nations out of our Southeast Baltimore office. Our mission is to help newly arrived refugees become independent and self-supportive by assisting them with services such as temporary financial assistance, job placement, cultural and community orientation, and referrals for English language study, health, education and social services.
