International Rescue Committee (IRC)

The IRC in Los Angeles

The IRC provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom.  Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination.  In Los Angeles and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps them rebuild their lives.


How We Help Refugees

The IRC makes sure newly arrived refugees receive:

  • a furnished home
  • help with rent
  • health care
  • nutritious, affordable food
  • English language classes
  • help building job, computer & financial literacy skills
  • education for their children
  • social services and community support
  • legal services toward residency & citizenship
