USCRI Vermont has been welcoming newcomers to Vermont since 1980. In the last 40 years, over 8,000 refugees have started new lives in Vermont with assistance from USCRI. Refugees resettled in Vermont come primarily from Bhutan, Bosnia, Burma, Burundi, Congo Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Vietnam. Newly arrived refugees receive a comprehensive set of linguistically and culturally appropriate services, with a goal of attaining self-sufficiency. These include Reception & Placement, Cultural Orientation, Intensive Case Management, Housing Placement, Health and Wellness, Transitional Cash Assistance, Workforce Development, Reach Up Case Management, Interpretation and Translation, Youth Empowerment and Mentoring, Digital Literacy, English Language Learning, Citizenship Classes, Community Partnership, and Volunteer Support.
