USCRI North Carolina



Since 2007, the USCRI North Carolina field office has welcomed thousands of individuals fleeing violence and persecution from all corners of the globe. Our dedicated team of staff, volunteers, and community partners supports these refugees and immigrants with access to affordable housing, medical and mental health support, education, employment, community connections, and more. Refugees resettled in North Carolina come primarily from Bhutan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Iraq, Russia, Somalia, Syria, and Ukraine.
