The Life Ahead

Exodus has a long history of welcoming refugees and asylees from many countries, cultures, languages, faiths, and political opinions. 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 from more than 50 different countries establish new lives in Indiana.

In FY2019, we welcomed 394 new refugees representing 11 different countries, while providing ongoing services to refugees who already call Indiana home. Countries of origin include: Burma, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ivory Coast, Sudan, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Afghanistan.

Our board of directors, staff, and volunteers are passionate about securing the dignity and human rights of people around the globe.

The best gift I have ever received is my resettlement because it concerns my whole life. I will take care of this gift.
