Community Engagement

The Rian Immigrant Center partners with a number of organizations across Massachusetts to provide specialized and expert programs to immigrants and their families.

We are grateful for our partnerships with Rosie’s Place, supporting homeless women and families, and survivors of domestic violence; Boston Medical Center, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Boston Healthcare for the Homeless (with Health Law Advocates), assisting immigrant and refugee patients to have better health support and outcomes; and Boston, Cambridge, Somerville (with Enroot), Revere, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, and Winthrop public schools, empowering K-12 immigrant students.

Irish Immigrant Community Support

Outreach manager Ann-Marie Byrne collaborates with the Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers (CIIC) and connects the Irish community in Boston with critical services and programming based on community need. Reaching immigrants regardless of immigration legal status, we provide information about legal rights and recommendations for Boston new-comers, including temporary accommodation, navigation, and other resources.  To learn more about our community support, contact Ann-Marie at
