To volunteer for refugee assistance, please visit our volunteer site.

Catholic Charities of Arlington and Office of Migration and Refugee Services is one of 104 national affiliates of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Since its founding in 1975, the office has resettled and assisted over 20,000 refugees and asylees in the Northern Virginia community.

As the largest refugee social service provider in Northern Virginia, we expect to serve over 1000 refugee and asylee clients this year alone.

 

WHO ARE WE?

We presently offer services in five sites throughout Northern Virginia and Fredericksburg including Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Chantilly and the city of Fredericksburg. At each of the sites, a comprehensive array of resettlement services are offered so as to help newcomers "get on their feet" and become self-sufficient as soon as possible after arrival. Staff members offer case management services in culturally appropriate languages - presently we have 20 languages on staff. These services are made possible by grants from the Virginia Office of Newcomer Services, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and through the financial support of churches, parishes, groups, and individual donors.
