Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: June 14, 2013, 6:08 PM

Description

Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee is the leading nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection and resettlement services for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. IRC is committed to freedom, human dignity and self-reliance. This commitment is reflected in well-planned resettlement assistance, global emergency relief, rehabilitation and advocacy for refugees.

The International Rescue Committee's Washington, DC Resettlement Office (IRC-DC) has been resettling refugees in the Washington, DC area since 1975. Our mission is to help newly arrived refugees become independant and self-sufficient by assisting them with services such as temporary financial assistance, job search and placement, immigration services, cultural and community orientation, and referrals for English language study, health, education and social services.
