    The International Rescue Committee

    The International Rescue Committee (IRC) was founded at the suggestion of Albert Einstein in 1933 as an emergency rescue operation for refugees fleeing Nazi persecution. Today, it is the world's leading non-sectarian voluntary organization providing relief, protection, and resettlement services for refugees and people uprooted by violence or fleeing persecution based on their religion, ethnicity, or political beliefs. The IRC offers emergency relief services in 28 countries overseas, and operates 15 domestic resettlement offices. Approximately 92% of IRC's funding goes directly to refugee programs, and IRC has been recognized by Money Magazine, Consumers Digest, Charity Rating Guide and Watchdog Report, the Wall Street Journal, and Smart Money for its fiscal soundness and quality of services. The IRC Seattle office was established in 1976 and has assisted over 16,000 refugees from 27 different countries. The office currently assists refugees with initial resettlement, placement in housing, job readiness training, employment counseling and job development, immigration processing, ESL instruction, and general case management. Aside from resettlement, the IRC Seattle Regional Office also provides employment, immigration, and referral and access assistance to a range of social services. The IRC employment project uses a combination of individual counseling and classroom job readiness training to place hundreds of refugee job seekers each year with local employers. The IRC immigration program assists several hundred refugees and immigrants each year in completing the forms necessary to bring their relatives to the United States, become permanent residents and apply for naturalization.
