Our Work in France

The Jesuit Refugee Service France fights against the isolation and social exclusion of asylum seekers and refugees in France.¬†JRS France’s work is based on field and local action, implemented by 40 regional offices: hospitality and temporary accommodation programs, legal support, cultural and¬†professional integration, and French language classes.

JRS France also participates in advocacy, defending the rights of asylum seekers at the national and European level.
