US Resettlement Agencies
These resettlement agencies provide services to refugees through their affiliate offices in cities across the U.S. For a list of resettlement agencies in your area, please click here. This link will take you to the Refugee Processing Center (RPC) that contains an updated Affiliate Directory as well as Agency Affiliate maps. The RPC is operated by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), which uses an interactive computer system called the Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System (WRAPS) in order to process and track the movement of refugees from various countries around the world to the U.S. for resettlement. Refugees are resettled across the country through affiliate offices of the nine national resettlement agencies (listed below) that resettle refugees on behalf of the U.S. Government. Resettlement agencies help newly arrived refugees settle into local communities and provide a wide range of services that promote self-sufficiency, such as employment and language skill classes. In addition to refugee integration, several of the agencies also provide comprehensive immigration services to assist refugees on their path to becoming permanent residents or U.S. citizens.
