JRS works with partners around the world to accompany, serve, and advocate for refugees. Partnerships allow our work to not only be more efficient and effective, but makes our work richer and our voices louder.
JRS/USA is grateful for the partnership of Jesuit institutions across the United States. JRS/USA works with Jesuit Universities, high schools, parishes, advocacy organizations, and leadership.

One of JRS/USA’s most significant partners is the U.S. Department of State Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), from which JRS receives funding to work with refugees and host communities around the world.
JRS/USA receives support from PRM for work in Cameroon, Chad, Ecuador, Kenya, South Africa, South Sudan, Thailand, and Uganda. Projects include secondary education for Sudanese refugees in Eastern Chad, emergency assistance for refugees in Thailand, child protection for Central African refugees in Cameroon, psychosocial support for Sudanese refugees in South Sudan, livelihoods training in Uganda, psychosocial services and protection for refugees in Kakuma and Kalobeyei camps in Kenya, and home health visits for home bound refugees in South Africa.
JRS Regions and Countries around the world work with partners to implement projects big and small. Partnerships include:
- JRS partners with the Humanitarian Innovation Fund and iAct to provide innovative early childhood programs.
- JRS works with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, around the world, implementing projects in camps and in urban areas.
