VRRP at Work in Colchester

The USCRI Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP) values the resilient and self-reliant community contributors that come to Vermont to rebuild their lives. We provide refugees with pivotal life-readiness services to ensure every person is empowered with the skills and tools needed to become a self-sufficient and productive member of a global society. Our local community is invited to explore this page for community-specific updates and opportunities to engage with our work and purpose. Join our passionate team and compassionate community to help us unite courage with opportunity for the latest generation of Americans!
