The Idaho Office for Refugees supports our nation’s founding belief of offering refuge and safety to people forced to leave their homes due to the persecution of their religious beliefs, political opinions, or ethnic heritage.
We create opportunities for refugees and the larger community to come together over their shared values of hard work, family, faith, and freedom, through English Language education, cultural events, and programs like Global Gardens and the Refugee Speakers Bureau.
Idaho has been home to thousands of people who arrived as refugees since the 1970s. The Idaho Office for Refugees works to create a more welcoming community by coordinating cultural events, English language education, and through programs like the Refugee Speakers Bureau, Global Gardens, and Global Talent Idaho.
