In addition to the resettlement of approximately 600 refugees annually, the IRC in Seattle assists over 300 refugees, asylees and victims of human trafficking every year through additional services such as immigration assistance, social services, case management, continuing education and youth programming. IRC's partners in the Refugee Support Network are Asian Counseling and Referral Service, Coalition for Refugees from Burma, East African Community Services, Jewish Family Service, School's Out Washington and Somali Community Services Coalition.
