International Rescue Committee (Atlanta Office)
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) provides opportunities for refugees to start a new life and begin to thrive in the United States. As they step off the plane with next to nothing besides their dignity, hope, and determination, those at the Atlanta office and from the IRC’s other regional offices in the United States are there to help them rebuild their lives. The IRC in Atlanta is a Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) accredited agency with three accredited staff members in their Immigration Department who provide low cost, high quality case management services to refugees, asylees, and immigrants. The BIA accredited staff members are authorized to complete immigration applications and represent their clients in front of US government officials. It is the IRC’s pleasure and pride to assist these refugees as they establish themselves in the United States and eventually attain citizenship in their new home country.
