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. All refugees that enter our program have been vetted by the U.S. State Department, and 89% of those we assist have helped the U.S. Military abroad.

As the largest refugee resettlement agency in the Commonwealth of Virginia, we expect to serve over 1,000 refugees, asylees, and Special Immigrant Visa holders this year alone.

 

WHO ARE WE?

We presently offer services in five sites throughout the Diocese of Arlington, including Arlington, Alexandria, Manassas, Annandale, and the city of Fredericksburg. At each of the sites, a comprehensive array of resettlement services are offered so that newcomers can become self-sufficient as soon as possible after arrival. Staff members offer case management services in culturally appropriate languages - presently we have 24 different 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.
