Immigrant & Refugee Support Group


We envision a community that cares for all of its members and in which all migrants who seek safety and freedom from oppression and harm are welcomed to the United States – and to New Hampshire, if they choose – with dignity and compassion. We respect the personal power and agency of the immigrants in our midst as the decision makers in their own lives, and we understand our role as offering support and accompaniment whenever we are privileged to do so. We are guided by our faith and by love as we dedicate ourselves to the quest for justice and welcome for all.

The IRSG is made up of volunteers from multiple congregations, and we welcome new members who want to share in our work. To inquire about joining the IRSG or to learn more, Contact


DONATE to the NHCUCC/IRSG Immigrant Bond & Support Fund

Immigrant Bond & Support Fund

Since mid-2018, thanks to the support and vision of the NHCUCC leadership and generous donations from UCCers and allies, the NH Conference has maintained a non-lapsing IRSG Immigrant Bond & Support Fund in order help address some of the most urgent needs of our asylum-seeking neighbors. ALL donations make a difference!

This Fund enables the IRSG to:

Provide individuals detained in NH by ICE with Modest Jail Commissary Funds

Post bonds, when possible, for immigrants incarcerated by U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Provide modest "Temporary Financial Assistance"

Provide assistance with legal fees, in special circumstances


The IRSG work encompasses:

SUPPORT AND ACCOMPANIMENT for asylum-seekers in our midst, with a particular focus on those who have experienced or are currently experiencing ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) detention.

EDUCATION AND POLICY ADVOCACY regarding immigrant rights and immigration issues.

We believe we are called by our faith…

• to become more aware of the many challenges and injustices faced by our asylum-seeking and other migrant neighbors, and

• to reduce the injustice of immigrant detention right here in NH by supporting immigrants detained by ICE, promoting their release and providing support and accompaniment after their release.

We partner closely with the American Friends Service Committee-NH Program (AFSC-NH), and others, in our work because we know we are more effective together.

Why Do We Serve Our Immigrant Neighbors?

The Bible, in numerous places, commands that we support our immigrant neighbors.
