Your gift to the IRC in NY & NJ’s Emergency Fund will protect vulnerable refugee and asylee families in crisis.
Families fleeing violence and persecution face a hostile immigration environment, reduced federal aid, and are often re-traumatized when they arrive in the United States. Many have traveled unimaginable distances and have no safety nets. When emergencies arise, they are especially vulnerable to exploitation and even homelessness.
The IRC helps parents and children seeking refuge to find safety and stability in New York & New Jersey. The NY & NJ Emergency fund, named the Robert P. DeVecchi Fund in honorable memory of the former IRC president, is dedicated to addressing acute needs of those we serve, including temporary housing assistance, access to psychosocial support, and help in medical emergencies.
