There are many ways to get involved with the IRC's work in Tucson.
Employ a refugee.
Refugees are resilient and are eager to find work and integrate into their new community. The IRC’s employment services helps to prepare refugees for Tucson’s job market and secure employment locally. Please contact Employment Services Supervisor, Katrina Martinez, at Katrina.Martinez [at] rescue.org (subject: Employing%20Refugees) for more information.
Help us find affordable housing.
We have received many offerings from community members to house newly arriving refugees in their homes. While we are deeply grateful, the IRC arranges for refugee families to rent their own apartments or houses as we feel it is a more sustainable solution that respects the inherent dignity of the people we serve.
Please contact us at TucsonIRC [at] rescue.org (subject: Affordable%20Housing%20Referral) to recommend any affordable housing options.
