Refugee Immigration Ministry

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

Programs include:

  • Community-based resettlement of asylum seekers and refugees
  • 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."

 

Every spring, RIM/Cambridge sells pansies to help support their refugee clients. The 2013 sale is over, but check back here for details on next year's sale in March 2014.
