USCRI Vermont has been welcoming newcomers to Vermont since 1980. In the last 42 years, over 8,000 refugees have started new lives in Vermont with assistance from USCRI. Refugees come primarily from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bosnia, Burma, Burundi, Congo Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Vietnam. New arrivals receive a comprehensive set of linguistically and culturally appropriate services, with a goal of attaining self-sufficiency. These include: Reception & Placement, Cultural Orientation, Case Management, Housing Placement, Health and Wellness, Cash Assistance, Workforce Development, Interpretation & Translation, Youth Mentoring, Digital & Financial Literacy, English Language Learning, Citizenship Classes, Community Partnership, and Volunteer Support.
