International Rescue Committee (IRC)

The IRC in Salt Lake City

As an essential part of our broader resettlement efforts, the New Roots program enables refugees to celebrate their heritage and nourish themselves and their neighbors by planting strong roots—literally—in their new communities.  Through New Roots and a range of other programs, we are helping refugees establish a strong future for themselves and Salt Lake City.  Learn more>
