American Refugee Committee

Non-profit, social workCompany size: 500-1000 people

American Refugee Committee is and always has been about amazing global citizens taking action to change our world. More than 35 years ago, Chicago businessman Neal Ball started ARC. He recruited a volunteer relief team who deployed to the Thai-Cambodian border. Even in the face of terrible tragedy, that first ARC team was characterized by their incredible energy and belief that anything was possible.
