International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Oakland, California

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 9, 2013, 7:59 PM

Description

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home. The IRC's local office in Oakland currently operates several highly effective programs to meet a wide variety of refugee and asylee newcomers' needs. Our office ensures new arrivals have food, shelter, and clothing, and we work with refugees to help them gain self-sufficiency through English language classes, job training and placement services, and community participation activities. This year, the IRC in Oakland will resettle over 300 refugees from Eritrea, Bhutan, Burma, Afghanistan, Iraq, Mongolia, and Sri Lanka.
