ShareCorps -CRIS- Community Engagment Specialist
Community Refugee & Immigration Services (CRIS) is an independent non-profit organization that serves the growing refugee and immigrant populations in central Ohio. We have over 60 staff members that hail from more than 15 countries with many languages represented. CRIS is a refugee resettlement agency, meaning we have a contract with the Department of State to directly receive and place refugees in our community. In partnership with Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries, we resettle individuals and families from all over the world.
