IRC provides essential resettlement services including access to basic necessities, education, employment, and social services to assist refugees in rebuilding their lives and reuniting families.
The IRC in Tucson is the largest refugee resettlement agency in Pima County and offers a range of services, including cultural orientation, job readiness training, financial literacy, medical and behavioral health assistance, nutrition education, and naturalization application assistance. The Survivors of Torture (SOT) project provides direct services and referrals using a trauma-informed approach to support clients in achieving self-sufficiency mentally, physically and socially.
