About us:

Through trauma-informed and culturally appropriate practices, the International Rescue Committee in Dallas provides services for refugees, asylum-seekers, and immigrants as they begin to build new lives in North Texas. Our programs include resettlement, case management, immigration services, youth programming, mental health, and economic empowerment, all designed to help our clients gain independence and take control of their futures. Each year, the IRC in Dallas serves over 2,500 refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants as they are welcomed into the safety and freedom of the United States.  Most of these individuals have survived against incredible odds, having fled violence and persecution in their home countries. In Dallas, the IRC works with government bodies, civil society actors, and local partners to help our clients thrive in their new community. Refugee families arriving in our communities look to the IRC –and to kind people like you–to reassure them that they are safe, welcome, and can begin to rebuild. 

At the IRC in Dallas, our programs are tailored to meet the needs of refugees, Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders, asylees, asylum-seekers, low-English proficiency individuals, naturalized citizens, immigrants, and other community members. In past years, we have assisted families and individuals from over 50 countries including Afghanistan, Myanmar, El Salvador, Haiti, Iraq, and Somalia. With a staff of over 80 members and 30 interpreters who speak a combined 40+ languages, we serve a diverse group of families and individuals as they become accustomed to living in North Texas. 


The mission of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is to help people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster, including the climate crisis, to survive, recover, and gain control over their future


Although we receive public funding for initial resettlement and employment services, the assistance, and educational services we provide to refugee families beyond their first few months in the U.S. would not be possible without community support from our kind and generous donors. Donations will provide space and services for programs such as our youth program, immigration and legal services, extended case management, financial coaching, and emergency assistance programs. Your support will help make North Texas a more welcoming and inclusive home for our newest neighbors.

Equity Statement

At the IRC, our diverse clients, partners, and staff have the power, voice, and agency to shape programs and operations. Within the IRC, we actively work to end all forms of systemic discrimination and foster an inclusive working environment where everyone feels respected, heard, valued, and supported. Our programs seek to reduce disparities in outcomes which are driven by systemic inequality.
