The USCRI Albany Field Office has welcomed more than 4,500 newcomers to Albany, New York since 2005. Refugees resettled in Albany come primarily from Afghanistan, Burma, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq and Syria. Newly arrived refugees receive a comprehensive set of services including housing placement, cultural orientation, school enrollment, coordination of initial health appointments, referrals to ESL classes and employment preparation and placement.
Housing, Employment and Interpreting
These services are offered to refugees and survivors of trafficking to help them get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
Health and Mental Health
Health services and mental health counseling are provided to refugees, immigrants unaccompanied minors and survivors of trafficking.
The Immigration Legal Services Program offers low-cost, professional legal representation to low-income refugees and immigrants and their families with family- and humanitarian-based immigration matters.
Social services may include family support, matching grants, employment, and intensive case management.
There are a number of ways to volunteer, either locally or through a fundraiser or campaign. Find a local field office near you or check out our ongoing fundraisers and sponsorships to see how you can help. We also participate in corporate partnerships.
