Resettlement is considered a durable solution for refugees who cannot return to their countries of origin or integrate into the current country that is hosting them. Resettlement to a country like the U.S. presents a life-saving alternative for a very small number of refugees around the world (less than one half of one percent). Refugees seeking resettlement in the United States must pass through a number of steps aimed at ensuring that they will not pose a security risk to the United States.

   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

   oRochester 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.

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."
