The Refugee Immigration Ministry (RIM) is an interfaith, community-based organization that has served hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers in Massachusetts since 1986.

This event will ensure that asylum seekers living in nearby communities have housing, food and access to English language tutoring until they can provide for themselves.

Your participation and/or donation will help give RIM’s clients the resources they need to start a new and safe life, free from persecution. Thank you for your help!

Please click on a specific cluster to donate or register to walk with that cluster. Donations made directly to RIM on this page will go to operational expenses.
