JRS Programs in the US
The US has long been a refuge for people forced to flee from their homes. Each year, thousands come to the United States to seek safety and security. Some are welcomed through the United States Refugee Admissions Program, while others cross the borders of the US seeking asylum.
JRS/USA is the US office for JRS, based in Washington, DC. JRS/USA provides support to the broader JRS network – through funding, oversight, monitoring, and evaluation – assisting JRS projects and programming throughout the world. JRS USA also serves forcibly displaced migrants in the US through our Detention Chaplaincy Program, Caminar Contigo, and the Migrant Accompaniment Network.
