Diocese of Olympia Refugee Resettlement Office
Every year, millions of refugees around the world leave their homes in hope of escaping tyranny, poverty and persecution. Through the Refugee Resettlement Office, many refugees begin a successful new life in Seattle. Diocese of Olympia, a part of the Episcopal Church, has been a presence in Western Washington for 75 years. The Diocese is comprised of 90 parishes and 15 social service missions, including the Refugee Resettlement Office (RRO). The RRO, founded in 1978, servies low-income refugees, immigrants, and mainstream citizens through a wide range of innovative projects. The Refugee Resetstlement Office primarily serves Seattle, but we also provide services to individuals and families in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.
