Refugees are people fleeing their countries due to war, violence or persecution. They have been granted “refugee” status by the United Nations. If they wish to resettle in the U.S., they must go through an extensive vetting process involving multiple federal agencies. IM has been resettling refugees- currently in partnership with Episcopal Migration Ministries and the U.S. State Department- for over 30 years. 90% of the refugees we serve are self-sufficient within six months of arrival.
