President Trump’s travel ban significantly impacts ECDC’s ability to provide services to refugees who have already made the United States their home. Since its establishment, ECDC, through its network of 15 affiliates across the U.S., has resettled and provided services to more than 50,000 refugees and Special Immigrant Visa holders.

The Executive Order  impacts  the daily life of refugees already resettled in the United States, those waiting to come to the U.S. as well as  shuts down the U.S. Refugee Admissions program, cutting significant resources and funding for ECDC, whose refugee resettlement affiliate network provides services and assistance to refugee families across the country.
Please give to our emergency appeal now in order to help ensure that ECDC can continue to provide critical services to refugees of all faiths and nationalities. ECDC represents a network of community-based organizations that resettles refugees in the U.S. As a result, ECDC has the expertise, mission, focus and 34 years of experience in helping refugees.

Without your support, we cannot continue to serve the numerous refugees who have arrived in the United States and who look to us for assistance. Your gift will help us provide refugee families in the U.S. with housing, cultural orientation, health care, education, employment, and other services. You can help us help refugees rebuild their lives.

All donations will be used for  programs that help refugees become self-sufficient and integrated into their new communities.  You can also make a one time or monthly contribution directly on ECDC’s website: http://www.ecdcus.org

To give by check, please mail it to: ECDC, 901 South Highland Street, Arlington, VA 22204

Thank you for your assistance in responding to the needs of refugees who need our help now.
