Episcopal Migration Ministries statement on affiliate partnerships, client support in Texas

Episcopal Migration Ministries announced on May 18, 2023, that the organization has ended its affiliate partnership with Refugee Services of Texas (RST) in Austin, Texas, following RST’s recent closure due to RST’s ongoing financial challenges. While we are shocked and dismayed by what happened at RST, our priority is to provide continuity of services to refugees and migrants, and we expect to announce new partners in Austin very soon. In the interim, EMM will be serving clients directly just as we continue to serve thousands of clients in partnership with affiliates and faithful Episcopalians nationwide.
