Our housing department needs household items to regularly furnish apartments for newly arriving refugees. You can help make an apartment feel like a home — order our latest needs direct to RefugeeOne’s office through our online wish list.
RefugeeOne has served more than 5,000 Ukrainian refugees since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022. At our headquarters in West Rogers Park and at two satellite offices, we host a variety of programs to help Ukrainians find stability and adjust to their new home in Chicago.
Creating opportunity for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.
Every year, RefugeeOne serves more than 2,500 refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants of all ages, ethnic groups, faiths, and backgrounds. Our primary focus is to assist these resilient individuals in becoming independent, self-supporting members of their new Chicagoland community.
