Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is the oldest and largest nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection, and resettlement services for refugees and other victims of oppression or violent conflict around the globe. Offering services in over 35 countries and 25 cities in the US, the IRC works to enable refugees and other immigrants to resume independent, stable, and productive lives in their new communities. The IRC has a long-standing history of working with refugees, asylees, victims of trafficking, and low-income immigrants throughout the Bay Area. The IRC in Northern California (IRC NorCal) was established in San Francisco in 1975 in response to the needs of Vietnamese refugees after the fall of Vietnam. Now operating in four locations throughout Northern California (Oakland, San Jose, Turlock, and Sacramento), IRC NorCal has successfully resettled more than 65,000 refugees, asylees, and other immigrants from over 50 countries, and has had a major impact on the development of new and vibrant ethnic communities in the Bay Area, Sacramento, and the Central Valley. Since its establishment, IRC NorCal has grown into a trusted community-based service provider, serving an array of low-income immigrant populations with a robust portfolio of services to help clients achieve economic self-sufficiency and integrate into their new communities.
