WHO WE ARE

We believe that our American character is based on fundamental values that embrace the newcomer with equal rights and equal opportunity. In return, America prospers—built by those who have placed their bets on the idea of America, e pluribus unum ("from many, one").

HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE

OUR VISION

Immigrants, refugees, and uprooted people will live dignified lives with their
rights respected and protected in communities of opportunity.

OUR MISSION

To protect the rights and address the needs of persons in forced or
voluntary migration worldwide and support their transition to a dignified life.


  • Self-Reliance

    USCRI, working with our partners, provide critical services to refugees and immigrants to help them become self-reliant and contributing members of their communities.

  • Partnerships

    USCRI has partners across the United States and in Central America. An African proverb tells us “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

  • Bridges

    We build bridges between New Americans and their communities. We build bridges that connect different communities to each other—accentuating our similarities and celebrating our differences. We built bridges across America to places around the globe where people are denied a voice.

  • Diversity

    America has welcomed diverse refugees and immigrants from around the world throughout our history. Our diversity has enriched our culture and grown our economy. We are a nation built by immigrants.
