Founded in 1933, the IRC is a leading nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection, and resettlement services for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. In the U.S., IRC provides assistance to refugees resettling here through 29 offices operating in 16 states. IRC resettles approximately 11,000 refugees per year and provides numerous program services to assist the refugee from their arrival through citizenship. The IRC in Boise opened it office in 2005, and provides resettlement services through extended case management to newly arrived refugees for up to 24-months as well as numerous other programs to educate and empower refugees.
In April 2022, the IRC in Boise launched Monarch Landing, a transitional housing project with the capacity to house families while IRC seeks families’ long-term housing. Families stay in Monarch Landing for anywhere from 30 days to 8 months. Monarch Landing includes private residences, common areas accessible to all residents, service areas and recreational opportunities.
