ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Accompany, Serve, and Advocate.
Jesuit Refugee Service/USA is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, DC that provides support – through funding, oversight, monitoring, and evaluation – to JRS projects and programming throughout the world.
JRS/USA also serves forcibly displaced migrants in the US through our Detention Chaplaincy Program. The Jesuit Refugee Service/USA chaplaincy programs provide pastoral and religious assistance to meet the needs of non-citizens detained by the Department of Homeland Security in five US federal detention centers.
JRS/USA also advocates to defend and protect refugees at home and abroad by representing them to Congress and US Government officials. JRS/USA also organizes supporters to raise awareness and advocate on refugees’ behalf.
JRS seeks to accompany, serve, and advocate the cause of refugees and other forcibly displaced people, that they may heal, learn, and determine their own future.
