SIMN provides services and activities in more than 250 Scalabrinian-based places, ranging from hospitals, orphanages and schools to research centres and employment agencies.


In addition to temporary room and board, in our Migrant Centres, every person receives counselling and orientation services, legal assistance, transportation, and reliable information to continue their journey


Through the creation of micro-enterprises, training workshops and an employment exchange system, the Scalabrinian Missionaries have joined efforts with public institutions, private companies and other no-profit organizations to help migrants find jobs and improve their living conditions


SIMN ultimate goal is to help migrants and refugees adjust to a new environment and contribute with their talents and skills to the new society. Migrants become like a sign of hope for the ones left behind in their homeland and for the people they come in contact with wherever they now live
