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.
Cache Refugee & Immigrant Connection (CRIC) focuses on helping refugees and immigrants integrate into society through improved access to services and education. Each week we help refugees and immigrants cross cultural and language barriers during our walk-in hours. Due to language barriers, we help fill out forms, call and set up appointments, and answer many different questions that clients may have. We help promote education and help with a variety of courses including: Utah driver's license test preparation and assistance to help study for the United States nationalization test.
