USCRI
Erie

The USCRI Erie Field Office, formerly the International Institute of Erie (IIE) has been welcoming and supporting newcomers to Erie, Pennsylvania since 1919. In 2009, IIE formally joined USCRI as a Field Office. Since 1980, 8,839 newcomers have been resettled in the Erie area with assistance from USCRI. Refugees resettled in Erie come primarily from Bhutan, Eritrea, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and Russia. 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.
