Our Mission & History

Our mission is to protect the rights and address the needs of persons in forced or voluntary migration worldwide and support their transition to a dignified life.

1911

Our story began in New York in 1911 when 15 million people, mainly from Europe, immigrated to the U.S. seeking freedom and opportunity.

Today

Today USCRI serves people from around the world who have immigrated to the U.S. seeking those same American values—freedom and opportunity.
