- About USCCB
Refugees, having suffered great loss, including loss of their homes, livelihoods, possessions and oftentimes families, need assistance starting over in a new country. Their initial needs are many: food, clothing, shelter, employment, ESL, and orientation to a new community and culture. In partnership with its affiliates, USCCB/MRS resettles approximately 30% of the refugees that arrive in the U.S. each year. The Catholic refugee resettlement network includes over 100 diocesan offices across the country and in Guam and Puerto Rico. Resettling refugees provides an extraordinary opportunity for countless Americans to take an active part in offering a caring and supportive environment for refugees as they begin new lives. Without volunteers and resources from the community and parishes, USCCB/MRS and the diocesan resettlement offices would be unable to accomplish the tremendous task of giving refugees new hope and the opportunity to begin again.
Residents of New York, Florida, and Washington, DC, donate online. Others may donate by going to the National Catholic Fund for Migration and Refugee Services webpage.
MyMembership is for diocesan staff working in partnership
with USCCB/MRS to provide services to refugees and migrants and others on the
move. It provides program-specific information, resources, and trainings
as well as broader resources to support this ministry. Login here.
