Join a Human Chain of Hope!

RIM provides community-based support to asylum seekers. This not only helps the clients to adapt to and integrate into their new communities, but it also enriches the volunteers who work with them.

RIM is continuing to respond to the needs of asylum seekers who are especially vulnerable at this difficult time. We have 26 people who are being assisted by a Cluster and there is a growing waiting list which now has 16 people who need our services.

RIM has traditionally held events to show the enrichment of sharing our food, our music and our arts. We can not do that this year. We had to cancel our Concert and we won't be able to hold our annual International Dinner.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Update

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This policy applies to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, have obeyed the law, and stayed in school or have been enlisted in the military. DACA provided young people who passed a background check and application process with temporary work permits and protection from deportation.
