Under the jurisdiction of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, the Massachusetts Office for Refugee and Immigrants is a federally-funded program established to assist refugees in adjusting to life in America. It supports programs for refugees and immigrants, acts as their public advocate, coordinates state and federal services on their behalf, and works to make mainstream programs linguistically and culturally accessible. MORI runs a statewide information and referral program, a volunteer-based citizen education project, and provides self-help groups with technical assistance, grant information, and funding. The agency conducts outreach to ethnic communities and manages an education campaign on job discrimination based on national origin or citizenship status. Individuals should contact the office for referral to appropriate programs and service providers.
