USCRI
Des Moines

The USCRI Des Moines Field Office has welcomed over 4,000 refugees from around the world to Central Iowa since 2010. Refugees resettled in Central Iowa primarily come from Afghanistan, Burma, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, and Syria. Newly arrived refugees receive comprehensive services including housing placement, cultural orientation, school enrollment, healthcare coordination, and employment preparation and placement. USCRI Des Moines also serves survivors of human trafficking and refugees and immigrants who have been in the U.S. for longer periods of time.
