International Rescue Committeehttp://www.Rescue.org
The International Rescue Committee is a non-sectarian, voluntary organization that serves refugees and communities victimized by oppression or violent conflict worldwide. Founded in 1933, the IRC is committed to freedom, human dignity, and self-reliance. This commitment is expressed in emergency relief, protection of human rights, post-conflict development, resettlement assistance, and advocacy. IRC Sacramento's mission is to help refugees and asylees start new lives of self-reliance and independence in the United States through a well-conceived and executed resettlement plan. We provide basic resettlement services, family reunification, financial support, employment services, career training and immigration services to individuals and families from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe. IRC Sacramento supports the International Rescue Committee’s commitment to freedom, human dignity, and self-reliance, and strongly believes in the capacity for refugees to heal and contribute their skills and talent to their adopted homeland.
