Immigration is an ever-present topic in the media today and it can be difficult to escape the images and stories of what is happening at our southwestern border. At Catholic Charities of Boston, we serve immigrants and refugees each and everyday through our Refugee and Immigration Services division- providing translation services, assistance with resettlement and legal services to those who come to us asking for help. In fact, we estimate that about 60% of the individuals that we serve across our programs at Catholic Charities of Boston are immigrants or refugees.
Marjean A. Perhot, director of Catholic Charities' Refugee and Immigration Services division, recently shared an article in The Pilot about the status of immigration today, how Catholic Charities assists immigrants and refugees and the importance of treating our neighbors with dignity and respect.
