On November 30, 2018, the Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration announced that Episcopal Migration Ministries, along with the other eight national agencies responsible for resettling refugees in the United States, has been awarded a contract to participate in the Reception and Placement Program for fiscal year 2019.
"We are thankful we will continue to resettle refugees in
the coming year," noted the Rev. Canon Charles K. Robertson, Canon to
the Presiding Bishop for Ministry Beyond the Episcopal Church. "We still
face the challenge of transitioning to a much smaller resettlement
program. This, at a time when there are more than 25.4 million refugees,
over half of whom are children. With everyone's support, we will
continue to welcome refugees to a place of safety and welcome. Please
join us in supporting this ministry of the entire Church by making a
gift at episcopalmigrationministries.org/give or text 'EMM' to 41444. Thank you, in advance, for gifts that do so much."
Since the 1980s, Episcopal Migration Ministries has resettled over
90,000 refugees through a network of local partners, volunteers and
supporters. Episcopal Migration Ministries operates through a network of
14 partner offices to aid with housing, employment training, language
services, medical services, and more.
