Since opening in 1979, the IRC’s locally funded office in Atlanta has welcomed close to 30,000 refugees from over 65 countries to resettle in communities across Georgia. A committed staff of more than 150 professionals—many of whom were refugees themselves—work together with community supporters to assist families in rebuilding their lives. In this video, some of them share their stories.

There are more displaced people in the world now than ever before and the services of our organization and the staff who do this work will continue to be needed in this community. We can only do this work because of dedicated supporters like you. Please continue to be a part of this movement.
