What good is a song if it doesn’t help?

Exodus Refugee Immigration

Exodus welcomes refugees here to Indiana and offers them a place to call home. We work to arrange housing, food and clothing, case management, as well as education, employment and health services for individuals and families starting out in their new lives.
Every day, millions of courageous persons flee their homelands due to unimaginable persecution. They seek refuge and human rights in other places around the world, including Indianapolis, Indiana.
As an independent, non-sectarian, 501(c)(3), and non-profit agency, Exodus is part of a network that works with Church World Service Immigration and Refugee Program(CWS/IRP) and Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) in the resettlement of refugees from all over the world.
Exodus Refugee Immigration is dedicated to the protection of human rights by serving the resettlement needs of refugees and other displaced people fleeing persecution, injustice, and war by welcoming them to Indiana.
