Create a home. Make a difference. Support a refugee.

What is USCRI NC?

We are a nonprofit 501-C(3) organization. Since 2007, the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) North Carolina field office has been welcoming refugees from Burma, Burundi, Eritrea, Cuba, Vietnam, Somalia, Bhutan, Iraq and more to the Triangle area, helping them gain personal independence and self-sufficiency through securing basic needs and providing orientation into their new culture and systems.

We are writing today to find out if you would be interested in supporting our agency’s mission by participating in the Welcome Home Project.

What is the Welcome Home Project?

The Welcome Home Project is an opportunity for community members and groups to welcome newly-arrived refugees to their new home. Volunteers secure furniture and household goods and then set up a home for newly arriving refugees who are arriving without household essentials. From the moment the family arrives in the US, their new home is ready and waiting for them!

The Welcome Home Project is a team project with flexible scheduling. You can make a huge difference in the lives in our newly arrived community members and we would love to collaborate with you!
