The IRC leads the way from harm to home for refugees and asylees in Dallas. We support communities by empowering newly-arrived refugees to become active parts of their new city. We welcome new arrivals at the airport, enroll their children in school, and help them to find employment. For six months we provide wrap-around services from job training to help with navigating the medical system.

As time progresses and needs change, the IRC in Dallas is able to continue to support our individuals and families for up to five years. Our services that continue onward include employment services, health and wellness, mental health services, and our newest program, academic coaching for high school youth.
