Resettlement Services

Over the past seven years, we’ve built a portfolio of fifty-five units of affordable housing and a community of over four-hundred refugees making a life for their families in our city. We provide job and language training, as well as links to supportive services such as housing and legal assistance.

and Repair

Through Rochester Refugee Sewing and Repair we are able to provide skills training and paid work in industrial sewing. Visit our shop to buy a scrunchie or contact us if you’re looking for people to sew for you!



We provide grant-funded job-search services for new Rochesterians with healthcare backgrounds, as well as training and support for recertification. In addition to this, we provide a link, through our employment agency, between local businesses and the various refugee communities.
