Mission Statement

HIAS rescues people whose lives are in danger for being who they are. We protect the most vulnerable refugees, helping them build new lives and reuniting them with their families in safety and freedom. Guided by our Jewish values and history, we bring more than 130 years of expertise to our work with refugees.
