The International Rescue Committee is on the ground in more than 40 countries, providing emergency relief, relocating refugees, and rebuilding lives in the wake of disaster. Through 22 regional offices in cities across the United States, we help refugees resettle in the U.S. and become self-sufficient..
The IRC in Boise works to utilize refugees’ strengths and skills to help them become financially and socially independent while honoring their individual goals and choices. We help refugees secure housing, food and medical care and insure that refugees have access to programs and services in the following areas: immigration, social security, social services, public education and more. We provide classes to educate refugees on the cultural and legal expectations of living in the US. We train refugees to be prepared to enter the US workforce and help them to secure jobs by actively recruiting employers, helping refugees with job applications, and to preparing them for job interviews.
