RIM is an Interfaith, community-based organization was founded in 1986. RIM’s volunteers bring clients into relationships with their communities.

Programs include:

  • Job preparation through English and computer classes
  • Spiritual Care Givers who provide chaplaincy services to immigrant detainees.
  • Case Management: All programs rest upon a strong Case Management plan, offering "new life and hope to uprooted people". As one client summed it up, "You took me from nowhere to somewhere."
