As immigrants come to Western New York, The Refugee Partnership is working together to welcome all with compassion and dignity. We know their burdens must be heavy, but we look forward to the care and refuge we are able to provide for our new neighbors. The Refugee Partnership is made up of Catholic Charities of Buffalo, International Institute of Buffalo, Jericho Road, Jewish Family Services, and Journey’s End Refugee Services. We each bring our own areas of expertise to help our newest neighbors find safety and peace. We recognize these individuals have traveled thousands of miles to escape war and persecution. They have the right to claim asylum under U.S. and international law. We stand ready to ensure their human rights.”
