Based in Uptown, Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement is one of seven agencies in metro Chicago that receives refugees approved by the Department of State and the United Nations.
Who is a refugee? A Refugee is someone who is unable to return to his or her home country due to race, religion, nationality or membership in a particular social group or political opinion. In 2016 the U.S. has resettled 70,000 people, more refugees than all the other countries combined. Last year with federal refugee policies put into flux the annual quota was cut 50% to 35,000 people. Additional restrictions and delays have put the ability to reach this number in question.
In spite of reduced staffing levels and budgets, Refugee Resettlement continues to provide all the most important aspects of life to their clients in a new environment for up to two years.
