Serving local refugees since 2012
Founded in July 2012, annually RSC serves approximately 1000 refugees, primarily from Burma, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Syria. Most of those we serve live in Orange County, North Carolina but we are able to work with refugees from surrounding counties on a case-by-case basis.
The world is experiencing the largest refugee crisis in global history.
An unprecedented 65.6 million have been forcibly displaced from their homes because of violence, persecution, and war.
There are currently 22.5 million registered refugees in the world.
Current US policy reduced this year’s number of refugee admissions for the upcoming year to 19,000, the lowest in the history of US resettlement.
Services provided on an ongoing basis include after-school tutoring, citizenship and English classes as well as monthly distributions of food and diapers. However, most refugees are seen on an “as needed” basis for a variety of services.
