Starting Wednesday, March 18, the IRC in Dallas will close our office and all of our staff will begin working remotely. This will continue until Friday, April 3, with updates being announced as they are decided. At this time, there has been no known COVID-19 exposure at our office, or among our staff, volunteers and clients. These measures are precautionary and based on guidance from experts. The IRC will continue to serve our clients while the physical office is closed. In fact, many families need our support now more than ever—and you can help!
- Donate to the IRC in Dallas’ Crisis Prevention Fund. Help us ensure our newest neighbors have the resources and services they need to get through this trying time. Already, many IRC clients have been impacted by quarantines, reductions in public services, and layoffs and hiring freezes. Help us ensure that newcomers have the resources and services they need to get through this trying time. No donation is too small! DONATE HERE! If you don't have Facebook, you can donate through our regular site here.
- Spread facts, not stigma. Misinformation can create fear and hostility that hurts people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. Together we can continue to extend compassion to new Americans fleeing violence and persecution and make them feel welcome here in Dallas. CDC Resources can be found here.
