Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) is a coalition of more than thirty U.S.-based nonprofit organizations supporting and protecting the rights of forcibly displaced people. Our work focuses on advocacy, strategic communications, and programmatic coordination. Although our coalition includes many refugee service providers, RCUSA does not engage in direct services, and we are unable to provide assistance to refugees or asylum seekers in need of help on their cases, or access to direct services.
While RCUSA does not provide direct services, please use the interactive tool below to help find answers to your questions.
