Since being founded in 1981 MVRCR has resettled more than 16,000 individuals to the City of Utica. These populations have included Vietnamese, Russian, Bosnian, Somali Bantu, Burmese, and Nepali, just to name a few of the larger and more recent arrivals. The experience of working with diverse individuals and meeting their needs for over 35 years has resulted in an institution that is people focused and uniquely positioned to provide products and services that allow us to collaborate with partners in building community with many cultures together.
The Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees (MVRCR) assists Refugees, Immigrants
and Limited English proficient (LEP) individuals throughout the integration process and helps them achieve independence and self-sufficiency by developing products and services that enable us to build community with many cultures.
