No one chooses to be a refugee. You can choose to help.

I am counselor at ICCS and every day I work hard to improve the lives of recently arrived refugees many of whom are survivors of torture, war, and other atrocities. I would like you to join me in helping refugee families! ICCS provides one-on-one counseling and support to recently arrived refugees we serve more than 350 clients a year. Most arrive to this country with one suitcase and the hope of building a new life in America. The typical family of 4 at our clinic lives on less than $10,000 a year and for that reason, many basic needs go unmet. This includes basic hygiene items like laundry soap, shampoo, towels, socks, coats and blankets, and life-saving pharmaceuticals.

We are asking for your help! Please consider helping us contact others who share a commitment to providing sanctuary to the world’s most vulnerable people, and asking them to make that adjustment to America just a little bit easier. Any amount they give goes directly and completely to support client needs.
