ABOUT THE MASSACHUSETTS IMMIGRANT COLLABORATIVE 

Immigrants are the backbone of support for the City of Boston and its surrounding communities. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on immigrant families losing their jobs and having little-to-no access to benefits or healthcare, the Rian Immigrant Center and 12 other partner organizations came together to form the Massachusetts Immigrant Collaborative (MIC).  The purpose of the collaboration is to address immigrant families’ most urgent needs by providing direct financial relief and other resources. Joining forces has allowed MIC to serve more than 13,000 immigrants since April 13, 2020.

Given our successes working together over the past two years, the Collaborative has developed a legal services model to address the demand for immigration legal services over the next two years. Collaborative partners will now offer timely access to centralized legal services to vulnerable immigrant communities. Our goal is to provide centralized, culturally competent, immigration legal support to immigrant families most impacted by Covid-19. The model will bolster the Collaborative’s internal capacity to meet the growing challenge of providing culturally-competent legal services to immigrants.
