Arizona has more than 62,000 refugees, who have been forced out of their country of origin due to persecution of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership to a particular social group. These are hard-working, often educated people who are struggling to survive. You can help them be welcomed into our country by helping provide for them as they start to settle.

Catholic Charities started its refugee program in 1975 in response to Vietnam refugees needing assistance as they fled violence. Today, Catholic Charities refugee programs serves thousands of refugees every year from all around the world. By providing support from meeting them at the airport to enrolling them in classes to learn English, refugees find themselves connected to a caring community as they begin getting acclimated to a new culture.
