USCRI: U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants

About Us

Since 1911, the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) has been serving uprooted people, regardless of their nationality, race, ideology, or social group.  We continue to provide tools and opportunities for self-sufficiency to refugees and immigrants nationwide, fight refugee warehousing around the world, serve victims of human trafficking, and protect the rights of unaccompanied immigrant children. 

USCRI has been mobilizing people and communities across the country to support, volunteer, and donate on behalf of the refugees and immigrants in their neighborhood and around the world.  Each year, thousands of refugees and immigrants rely on the support and cooperation of their communities to adjust to life in America, learn new skills, and eventually give back.

USCRI is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan, nonsectarian charitable agency registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. 

Our Mission

To protect the rights and address the needs of persons in forced or voluntary migration worldwide by advancing fair and humane public policy, facilitating and providing direct professional services, and promoting the full participation of migrants in community life.

A Century of Service

For the past 100 years, USCRI has helped shape history.  From publishing the first book on U.S. Citizenship to helping refugees from war-torn places in Europe, Asia, and Africa build new lives in the United States to protecting the rights of unaccompanied immigrant children to now serving victims of human trafficking in the United States, USCRI has led the way in guiding newcomers toward achieving the American Dream.
