Episcopal Migration Ministries

Refugees face down some of the most dire and difficult circumstances imaginable, fleeing their countries to escape persecution, oppression, and war. Episcopal Migration Ministries welcomes refugees to peaceful homes and hopeful futures in the United States, partnering with faith groups, volunteers, community organizations, and many other local supporters to build a foundation for success for these new Americans. In its 2011 program year, Episcopal Migration Ministries and its network of local affiliate partners assisted more than 3,600 refugees from 34 countries. From the moment they arrive in their new communities, refugee clients receive care, hospitality, and assistance from professional affiliate staff and from the hundreds of generous church volunteers who welcome the stranger through this ministry each year.
