Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a leading non-sectarian non-profit organization that provides emergency relief, protection, rehabilitation assistance, resettlement services and advocacy for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. Staff and volunteers provide shelter, medical and public health assistance, education, training and income-generating programs for refugees in nearly 30 countries. IRC also helps refugees resettle in the United States. IRC field offices across the United States ensure that new arrivals have food, shelter and clothing.
