Thank You from IRM Executive Director

To our wonderful community of supporters:

Thank you for your continued hard work and dedication to Interfaith Refugee Ministry (IRM) and our clients. Although our country’s political climate is posing many challenges for our day-to-day operations, your continued efforts to make eastern North Carolina a place of welcome for those fleeing from persecution and terror has encouraged us to face those challenges and continue our work.

With you for 25 years, IRM has helped refugees transition to new lives in peace and safety. With you, we have watched frightened men, women, and children bloom into contributing members of our communities. Now, with you we will advocate to oppose the halt of the refugee program that has saved over 3 million lives.

Please stand with us to welcome refugees by DONATING, ADVOCATING, VOLUNTEERING.


Susan Husson

Executive Director
