THE STORY:

Safety. Stability. Success.
Welcoming, serving and empowering refugees in Georiga.

RRISA serves refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, Violence Against Women Act cases, and low-income immigrants. Annually, up to about 70,000 refugees (less than 1% of the world’s refugee population) are resettled in the United States through a U.S. humanitarian program. Refugees enter the U.S. legally and are on track to become U.S. citizens within 5 years. In 2012, RRISA welcomed 439 of the refugees resettled in metro Atlanta. Our refugees and asylees represent 16 countries. Currently, most of our clients are coming from Burma (Myanmar), Bhutan, Iraq, Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia.

Our vision is that refugee families will become stable, financially independent, and productive members of the community, while preserving the ethnic and cultural identity that supports their dignity and self-esteem. Our immediate goal is to enable families to become financially self-sufficient.

We answer the humanitarian call to serve those fleeing from persecution, war, famine and extreme poverty by helping with:
Immediate needs for shelter, food, clothes and medical care
Employment
Education and cultural orientation
Individual, family and community identity
Long-term healing
