U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants North Carolina
The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants North Carolina Field Office (USCRI NC) was established in 2007 to help refugees build new lives in North Carolina. Each year, USCRI NC welcomes refugees who have fled violence and persecution from places like Burma, Cuba, Somalia, Sudan, and Vietnam. USCRI NC works to bring hope and opportunity to the lives of refugees and immigrants by defending human rights, promoting self-sufficiency, and forging community partnerships. USCRI NC focuses on meeting the immediate basic needs of new arrivals, assisting refugees in obtaining early employment and achieving self-sufficiency, and nurturing community integration for new Americans.
