Our Mission

Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) lives the call of welcome by supporting refugees, immigrants, and the communities that embrace them as they walk together in The Episcopal Church’s movement to create loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships rooted in compassion. EMM’s desire to honor the inherent value of human connection brings communities together to love their neighbors as themselves.

EMM acts in covenant with individuals and partners to ensure the equity of all voices as they work to serve, engage, and sustain the mission.

Building Relationships & Foundations

Every refugee who reaches our shores brings tremendous gifts and capabilities to achieve success in the United States. Our mission is to provide every person we serve with the foundation required to live out those gifts to the fullest.
