REFUGEES HELPING REFUGEES is a community-based, refugee-led organization in Rochester, NY. Our mission is to foster the growth, self-determination, and self-reliance of refugees in our city and county.

We provide the education, training, and support that enable refugees/our community members to build on their own strengths in order to advance and thrive in society. Our programs and services include English language, citizenship, and health education; work experience training; legal clinics; and comprehensive case management. RHR also provides academic support for youth and senior activities. Through active participation, refugees/members of the refugee community develop essential skills, grow confidence, and gain independence.
