Who We Are
Founded in 2014, No One Left Behind is the oldest charitable organization focused specifically on supporting former interpreters and U.S. government employees eligible for the Iraqi and Afghan SIV programs. We advocate for the Special Immigrant Visa programs, help evacuate deserving SIV applicants to safety, and provide resettlement assistance to help them start new lives as Americans.
We have advocated for numerous legislative and policy improvements to reduce the average 3.5-year visa processing wait time, during which applicants face risks of death at the hands of those they once helped the United States fight. We played a significant role supporting the enactment of the Emergency Security Supplemental Appropriations Act (Public Law 117-31), which improved the Afghan SIV program and was signed into law on July 30, 2021.
In 2021, we evacuated 493 Afghans to safety and provided $493,000 in resettlement assistance to 330 SIV families newly resettling in the United States. But for every family we touched, we had four more waiting. We need your help today.
No One Left Behind was founded to support those who risked all for the United States, our servicemembers, and diplomats. By working for the U.S. government, local interpreters and employees in Iraq and Afghanistan risked their lives for Americans. We work to ensure the United States honors its commitments to those who helped us in our time of need.
We are committed to ensuring that our allies and their families are evacuated to safety, and that when they arrive in the United States, they have adequate resources to contribute meaningfully to society as new Americans.
We exist to serve those who served alongside
Americans. We are steadfast in our mission, and we will not forget those who risked all for us. We will serve them until no one has been left behind.
“The car which was donated from No One Left Behind has really changed my life. With that car I work pizza and Amazon delivery. I can now support my family. Now I am happy and my family is feeling much more comfortable with our new life in the US. I sincerely thank NOLB for the unforgettable assistance that you gave me and I wish you well for your continued efforts to provide SIVs assistance in the future. You are changing our lives.”
