The IRC in San Diego

Graduation 2014

Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom.  Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many refugees have survived against incredible odds. Refugees step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination.  In San Diego, the IRC helps refugees to rebuild their lives.  Learn about our programs in San Diego.

Graduation was a great day for Ranjit, Horiyo, and all the seniors in IRC's Youth Programs.  Learn more at Rescue.org/sdYouthPrograms.  Photo: Jessica Wawrzyniak/The IRC
