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
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.

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. In addition, when time and resources permit, Saint's Place will assist the poor and needy in the Rochester community.
