Our Mission

The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and regain control of their future.

Every day, all across the globe, innocent families and individuals are uprooted from their home and forced to flee. They flee from persecution, genocide, and war. In 1994, the IRC opened its doors in Salt Lake City and has since resettled over 10,000 refugees from countries around the world. 

Each month, we welcome refugees from countries such as Burma, Sudan, Iraq, Bhutan, Somalia, Eritrea, among others including Syria. The minute these brave individuals and families step off the plane in Salt Lake City, IRC staff and volunteers are there to help them on the final leg of their journey from harm to home. We provide housing and cash assistance, access to health care and other basic services, and help men and women gain the skills they need to secure stable employment. We also help refugees achieve their dreams of becoming U.S. Citizens, starting new businesses and planning for their futures. 

Consider starting a fundraiser to help us continue to provide the best possible service to refugees in our community.

As you may know, the White House recently signed an Executive Order banning refugee resettlement. We expect this ban to take effect in March of this year. The ban will result in a halt to all refugee resettlement in the U.S. for a 120-day period. While the ban is in effect, we will continue to provide services to refugee families and individuals who have already been resettled. However, refugee resettlement and our humanitarian efforts are threatened by charges made against refugees and immigrants alike.

Your support upholds America’s greatest values of welcome and opportunity for all. We are grateful for your support, for raising your voices and standing up to make refugees welcome in Utah!
