In January 2012, a group called the Refugee Community Council met for the first time, under the auspices of the Utah Department of Workforce Services. Building on the experiences and knowledge of representatives from different organizations, community volunteers, and refugees, this group established a coalition dedicated to the positive development of Cache Valley's refugee communities. As interest from more organizations and volunteers grew, the Refugee Community Council evolved into the Cache Refugee & Immigrant Connection (CRIC) in June 2013. CRIC became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in January 2015.
The mission of the Cache Refugee & Immigrant Connection (CRIC) is to promote integration, economic self-sufficiency, and positive connections among refugees, immigrants, and the wider community through two-way education, improved access to existing services, and development of new services. Each week we help refugees and immigrants cross cultural and language barriers during our walk-in hours, study groups focused on preparing for the Utah driver's license written test and the United States nationalization test.
