Our mission is to help refugees and immigrants reach safety and stability, sustain self-sufficiency, and achieve successful integration into the Central Ohio community.
Community Refugee & Immigration Services (CRIS) is an independent non-profit organization that serves the growing refugee and immigrant populations in Central Ohio. Our various programs have dedicated staff members from more than 10 countries who speak many different languages. We are a refugee resettlement agency, meaning we have a contract with the Department of State to directly receive and place refugees in our community. In partnership with Church World Service, we resettle individuals and families from all over the world.
Join us at our live and in-person event on Saturday, October 9, or virtually between Wednesday, October 6, and Sunday, October 10, 2021, to complete your 5K run or walk as we celebrate our mission and our community.
