Simon (Portland, OR)

“I’ve never been the social type. I’m more of homebody, which can be really lonely at times.  But, being part of the IRCO community allows me to  meet and make friends from all over the world. We share meals, exercise together and genuinely care about each other.  Being here makes me feel more human. We don’t speak the same language and maybe different colors, but we’re really the same. We’re all human and have the same right to live, no matter where we come from.”

IRCO is a nonprofit organization promoting the integration of refugees, immigrants and the community at large into a self-sufficient and inclusive multi-ethnic society. Learn how you can make a difference here.
