Switchboard is a one-stop resource hub for refugee service providers in the United States. With the support of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), we offer tools and materials, learning opportunities, research, and technical assistance on resettlement-related topics. From employment, education, and health, to monitoring and evaluation, Switchboard’s focus areas reflect real-world needs. You can browse our extensive resource library, access online learning and visit our blog. Soon you’ll be able to search Switchboard’s evidence database. Need custom support? We connect subject matter experts across disciplines with ORR-funded organizations seeking personalized training or consultation.
Funded by ORR, Switchboard is implemented by the International Rescue Committee (IRC). IRC has partnered with Lutheran Immigrant Refugee Service (LIRS) to provide employment-related training and technical assistance. We are guided by a national advisory panel comprised of resettlement professionals who include representatives of state and federal government, resettlement agencies, prominent technical service providers, and former refugees.
