The Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP), a field office of USCRI, has helped refugees begin new lives in Vermont since 1980. VRRP provides refugees with their first home in the United States and helps them get their first job. The resettlement program plays two roles. VRRP offers short-term intensive services with the goal of helping refugees achieve self-sufficiency within eight months. VRRP also provides English Language Training and employment services for up to five years after arrival.
Refugees are hard-working and resilient employees. VRRP’s Employment Department provides comprehensive employment placement and retention services to local businesses that ensure the right employment match.
