Non-Profit

Refugee Immigration Ministry is an interfaith, community based organization that has served hundreds of asylum seekers and refugees in Eastern Massachusetts since its founding in 1986. Asylum seekers come to the United States with hopes of rebuilding their lives in a safe, caring society free from the fear of war and persecution. However, until they are granted asylum by the U.S. government, they are typically ineligible to legally work or receive any kind of government assistance. RIM helps asylum seekers with housing, food, transportation, English language tutoring, and community support until they can begin to provide for themselves.
