Where We Work

A nationwide network of welcome

Our field offices and robust partner network provide wraparound services for New Americans across the country.

Since the inception of Global Refuge in 1939 we have helped over 750,000 refugees build new lives in the United States.

Our nationwide network of local partners, caseworkers, and community volunteers walks alongside New Americans as they find support and success in American communities.

At Global Refuge, we believe everyone should be welcomed with dignity and open arms.
