Who We Are
Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS) is an independent non-profit organization that serves the growing refugee and immigrant populations in Central Ohio. We have over 50 staff members that hail from more than 15 countries with many languages represented. Many of our staff persons have been refugees themselves and are integral members of the communities we serve. Our office is open Monday through Friday 8:30-4:30, and all are welcome. Please call to schedule a visit!
Media & News
We want to help provide good, quality resources about refugees, and refugee resettlement to the United States. It can be hard to know where to find 'the facts'. We feature additional information here to help you learn even more about refugees and how they fit into the broader American culture.
A Refugee's Life
There are many ways to hear the voices and see the faces of our refugee communities. Their stories are a unique part of the beautiful tapestry that makes the United States a diverse and wonderful place to live. Some of those stories are featured here in A Refugee's Life Section.
