The Refugee Resettlement Office is a non-profit agency which provides immediate shelter, food and clothing to hundreds of refugees each year when they first arrive in the Seattle area. Our clients come from countries throughout the world, fleeing war, political oppresion and religious persecution. We assist in cultural adjustment, language, and the basics of day-to-day living. Our employment program helps many individuals obtain living-wage jobs and move promptly off the welfare rolls. We annually place an average of 300 people in new jobs.
While affiliated with the Diocese of Olympia, we do not discriminate in any way regarding the provisions of services. Our volunteers, staff and contributors - like those to whom we provide services - come from diverse religious, ethnic and national backgrounds.
We would like to thank all last year's donors, whose contributions strengthened our programs and enabled us to provide more help to the Seattle area refugee community.

Since 1978, Refugee Resettlement Office has helped thousands of people. More than half of those helped are children.

ESL Student Sponsorship
Due to insufficient funding and strict eligibility guidelines, every month we are forced to turn away many eager to learn students.
