RIF Asylum Support welcomes refugees seeking asylum in New York City. We guide those who fled persecution towards safety. Our mission is to help asylum seekers get back on their feet and rebuild safer lives.
RIF was established in 2006 to fill the huge void of support faced by asylum seekers upon arriving in NYC. This void is now aggravated by anti-refugee policies, creating a climate of fear among those seeking protection.
