About Refugee One
RefugeeOne creates opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.
RefugeeOne is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that provides a full range of services to refugees brought to the United States by the U.S. State Department for resettlement in the Chicago metropolitan area. The majority of our services are provided to refugees displaced from their homelands due to war or persecution. Every year, RefugeeOne helps these refugees secure housing, learn English, acclimate to American culture, develop computer and other employable skills, find jobs, obtain medical and other care, access the public school system for their children, apply for citizenship, and obtain care for elderly family members. The majority of RefugeeOnes’ services are provided to refugees displaced from their homelands due to war or persecution. In the past, the U.S. saw major resettlements of refugees from Eastern Europe, Vietnam, the former Yugoslavia, and various African countries. The majority of refugees currently being resettled in the U.S. and by RefugeeOne are: Iraqis who assisted the current U.S. military, and those who have fled persecution. Burmese who have fled the violence of the junta of Myanmar • Bhutanese who have fled “ethnic cleansing”
