USCRI Detroit



The USCRI Dearborn field office has been welcoming newcomers to Detroit, Michigan area since 2007. Refugees resettled in Dearborn come primarily from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Burma, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Nepal, Somalia, Syria, and Ukraine. Newly arrived refugees receive a comprehensive set of services including housing placement, cultural orientation, school enrollment, coordination of initial health appointments, and employment preparation and placement. USCRI Dearborn maintains strong relationships with refugees and long-time community partners that provide services to Middle Easterners and other large communities in Southeast Michigan.
