Since 2020, the IRC in Silver Spring experienced a 500% increase in the number of refugees and immigrants we serve. The IRC in Silver Spring is committed to help refugees and immigrants rebuild their lives in the United States. We need you support to ensure the newest members of our communities thrive. Here are the three most impactful ways to help refugees and immigrants in 2024: 

  1. Donate to the Stable Homes Fund– gift refugees the best chance at a fresh start in our community.  
  2. Volunteer with the Welcome Home Project – create a warm and welcoming home for families as they start new lives in Maryland.
  3. Become an Employer Partner – access talented, ready-to-work employees and help locally-resettled refugees get back on their feet.
