Episcopal Migration Ministries is the refugee resettlement and immigrant advocacy program of the Episcopal Church.

Episcopal Migration Ministries is the refugee resettlement and immigrant advocacy program of the Episcopal Church. It continues to carry out the ministry it began over 60 years ago to relieve the burden of the world's suffering through refugee resettlement and assistance to immigrants. It is one of 10 U.S. resettlement agencies working in a public-private partnership with the U.S. government. EMM resettles between 2500-3500 refugees each year through its network of 33 affiliate offices in 27 dioceses of the Episcopal Church. At the heart of the ministry are Episcopal parishes and other faith communities serving refugees in a variety of ways, including contributions, advocacy, volunteering and co-sponsorship.

Over the next five years, the US will welcome thousands of refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo. How will you #ShareTheJourney? 

Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM), the refugee resettlement service of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, partners with  affiliates,  along with dioceses, faith communities and volunteers across the United States, to welcome refugees from conflict zones across the globe.
