Refugee Resettlement

Catholic Charities Community Services, a national leader in the effective, compassionate resettlement of thousands of refugees, provides a welcoming and supportive network to help those new to our country quickly gain independence and become productive members of their new community.

Refugees flee their country of origin to save their lives. They run from war and persecution, often having to leave behind family and friends. They are granted refugee status by the United Nations due to a well-founded case of persecution, and cleared for entrance to America by our Department of Homeland Security.

Some of our refugees come to us from Iraq, where helping our military efforts have put their lives in danger. Others come from countries like Sudan and Burma, where ethnic discrimination has deprived them of their homes and livelihoods and still others escape from war-torn countries like The Congo. Many come to us after spending more than 10 years in refugee camps.
