Refugee Resettlement Committee

Refugee families arrive in Salt Lake City every week. For over 20 years, First Church volunteers, now as the Refugee Relocation Committee (RRC), have supported the International Rescue Committee (IRC), which sponsors the immigration and settlement of refugees under the auspices of the US State Department. 

The number of refugees arriving in Salt Lake City is expected to increase in 2021! 

Interested in helping current or arriving refugees? 

Check out: Rescue.org/VolunteerSLC or Facebook.com/IRCSaltLakeCity or contact the local office of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) at (801) 328-1091. The SLC IRC also publishes an “IRC Amazon Wish List” of the current needs of refugees in SLC at: http://bit.ly/IRCWishList

The RRC of First Unitarian Church is also welcoming new volunteers. If interested, contact RRC Coordinator Joe DuBray at (904) 527-9773 or .

The RRC continues to collect donations for refugees of household related items, especially dining tables and dining chairs and bicycles, new helmets and locks. No mattresses, beds or bedding. Donated items must be new or in good, second-life condition. Contact Joe with questions or to arrange a donation pick up. Thank you for continuing to support the refugees. Stay safe and take care.

Thank you for your continuing support of RRC's humanitarian work!
