RefugeeOne's 30th Anniversary


RefugeeOne would like to offer our most sincere thank you to all those who donated to our organization during GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day.  The day was a huge success; with the match, we raised nearly $6,000 for the refugees who resettle in Chicago through our organization!   We are humbled by your efforts.  Additionally, we are excited to know that the support that we have from the community for our clients continues.  For more information on how these funds will be allocated, visit our website and see the services we offer at


RefugeeOne Marks Its 30th Anniversary.  Since 1982, the organization has resettled thousands of refugees from every major conflict around the globe:  Pol Pot’s Killing Fields, people fleeing genocide in Rwanda, Milosevic’s Serbia, Jews from the U.S.S.R., Kurds from Iraq, Iranians fleeing the Islamic Revolution. For 30 years, some of the most mistreated people in the world were helped by our organization.
