USCRI
Vermont

The USCRI Vermont Field Office, formerly the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, has been welcoming newcomers to Vermont since 1980. In the last thirty-eight years, over 8,000 individuals have started new lives in safe surroundings with assistance from USCRI. Refugees resettled in Vermont come primarily from Bhutan, Bosnia, Burma, Burundi, Iraq, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo Brazzaville, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Vietnam. Newly arrived refugees receive a comprehensive set of services including housing placement, cultural orientation, school enrollment, coordination of initial health appointments, employment preparation and placement, and transitional short-term cash assistance.
