- Exodus Refugee Immigration is dedicated to the protection of human rights by serving the resettlement needs of refugees and other forcibly displaced people fleeing persecution, injustice, and war by welcoming them to Indiana. We began in 1981 with the mission to serve the legal needs of immigrants and Cuban refugees who had arrived as part of the Mariel boatlift in 1980. Since that time, Exodus has helped thousands of refugees establish their lives in Indiana. In its 40-year history, Exodus has served refugees and other forcibly displaced populations from 50 different countries. Our board of directors, staff, and volunteers are passionate about securing the dignity and human rights of people around the globe. Exodus Refugee Immigration is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization. In 2020, we welcomed 175 refugees from the following countries: Burma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan and Eritrea. ABOUT OUR INTERNSHIPS All internships are unpaid.
