Great Hearts Initiatives | RefugeeOne

Mission

We create opportunity for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.

The U.S. Department of State defines a refugee as someone who has fled from his or her home country and cannot return because he or she has a well-founded fear of persecution based on religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. According to the U.S. Committee for Refugees & Immigrants 2009 World Refugee survey, there are approximately 15.3 million refugees worldwide.

The first step for most refugees is to register with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in the country to which s/he has fled. UNHCR has the mandate to provide international protection to refugees. UNHCR determines if an individual qualifies as a refugee and, if so, works toward the best possible durable solution for each refugee: safe return to the home country, local integration, or third-country resettlement.

RefugeeOne serves refugees who are brought to the United States through the U.S. State Department and sent to Chicago for resettlement.
