Afghan Placement and Assistance Program

Afghan Placement and Assistance Program

Interfaith-RISE is a partner agency of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).  USCRI is one of 9 agencies that the state department works with to resettle between 50,000 and 100,000 refugees a year, from all around the world.  In the wake of the transfer of power in Afghanistan, that has left many Afghans in grave danger, USCRI and its affiliates have joined forces with the other 8 national agencies to offer tens of thousands of permanent resettlement opportunities.  Interfaith-RISE is proud to increase our resettlement numbers by 125 Afghans in addition to the 180 refugees (among whom were 42 Afghans) that we’d agreed to resettle in the next 12 months.
 
Interfaith-RISE has hired staff to immediately step in and work on renting apartments, organizing donations, mobilizing volunteers and preparing for a major increase in resettlement.  Please watch for additional information to be coming to this page soon.   In the meantime, you can join our volunteer email list and donate to make an immediate impact on our ability to support to those coming out of this tremendously traumatic experience in Afghanistan.
