Episcopal Migration Ministries, one of nine national agencies responsible for resettling refugees and special immigrant visa holders in partnership with the U.S. government, announced that it has resettled 100,000 individuals since it was formally established in the 1980s.
“We mark this milestone with much thanksgiving and gratitude for all who have partnered with our dedicated staff in this vital ministry of serving our global neighbors forced to flee their homes in search of safety and security,” said Demetrio Alvero, operations director for EMM. “Jesus exhorted us to love our neighbors—as he demonstrated in the parable of the Good Samaritan. We do this through intentional, loving, and practical care of others’ needs.”
