If you are a refugee, an asylum seeker, an asylee, or if you are planning to seek asylum, you do not have to be alone. Here at BCRHHR, we understand the challenges that members of the refugee community face.

If you or your family have been persecuted or harmed by the government or police in your home country due to your political beliefs or sexual orientation, we may be able to help you. Please come visit us at Boston Medical Center.


We are open from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday-Friday, and welcome people irrespective of ability to pay


Our services are designed to meet the special needs of asylum seekers, torture survivors, and refugees from all around the world. On your first visit you can expect to learn more about what we do and how we might be able to help you build a healthy life in Boston.
