   Due to civil strife of war in their homeland,

   there are over 16.7 million people that have no

   place to call home.  Most of these people are

   scraping out desperate lives in refugee camps

   in foreign lands.  After arriving in Rochester,

   the refugees are welcomed via the Catholic              Family Center Refugee Resettlement program

   and subsequently welcomed at Saint's Place,

   a ministry of St. Louis, St. John of Rochester

   and the Catholic Family Center. At Saint's Place,        the newly arrived refugees receive needed

   resources and support that provide the basic           necessities for them to rebuild hopeful lives in

  their adopted homeland.

Is that every newly arrived refugee will know they are welcomed in their new community and that they have the necessities to start their journey  to self-sufficiency. 

We have resettled thousands of refugees. We recognize  their plight, strength and willingness to be part of our community and make it their home.  We want to restore their dignity, honor and empower the refugees. 

There were 16.7 million refugees worldwide at the end of 2013.  Half of the world refugees in 2013 were children. The 1951 Refugee Convention spells out that a refugee is someone who "owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion,  nationality, membership of a particular social group of social opinion, is outside the country of his/her nationality, and is unable to, or owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself /herself of the protection of that country."  

Saint's Place is a volunteer organization based on Christian values that provides household goods, clothing and education to legal refugees of all races and creeds who settle in the Rochester, New York area to escape violence, discrimination and poverty.
