The Iu-Mien Association of Oregon was created to assist and support the Iu-Mien communities in Oregon on their path to self-sufficiency while affirming the preservation of Iu-Mien language, culture and traditions.
The Iu-Mien Association of Oregon has served as a vital resource to the Oregon Iu-Mien community. Our mission is to support and develop healthy Iu-Mien families and communities through culturally preservation and responsive programs and services.
The Oregon chapter provides assistance and support to the Iu-Mien communities in Oregon and provided services to help families adapt and adopt the new language and become more acclimated to the mainstream American culture to become contributing members of American society.
The Iu-Mien Association of Oregon also served as contact point to the local and national government institutions that managed the resettlement of refugees, a bridge for the communication gaps between the Iu-Mien communities in Oregon and others, and promote the Iu-Mien culture and tradition here at home and abroad.
