Refugee resettlement in the U.S. is a collaborative effort
The role of the federal government
The federal government collaborates with national resettlement agencies and offers finite funding for the support of refugees. This intricate web of support and coordination involves consultations with local leaders and service providers at the municipal and state levels.
Refugee resettlement programs are funded and directed from two federal agencies: the Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, as well as the Administration for Children and Families’ Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Partners and organizations further our mission
Our mission is further supported by in-kind contributions of items and volunteer time from partnerships with esteemed universities, corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
We are proud to collaborate with institutions such as the University of Maryland, Georgetown University, George Washington University, and Howard University.
Our corporate partnerships extend to giants like Accenture Federal and Amazon. On the nonprofit front, our collaboration includes organizations like CASA, Women Giving Back, KIND Organization, and the LDS – Resource Center for a Better Life.
