Hummustown is a cooperative run and managed by its members. Its mission statement upon inception was to provide a decent income-generating income for the influx of Syrian refugees seeking asylum in Italy. It is a non profit organization, where profit, if and when it is generated, is reinvested in the running of the cooperative. As the number of Syrian refugees tappered over the years, Hummustown adapted its mission statement to support other vulnerable communities, including refugees from countries other than Syria, victims of domestic abuse and violence of all backgrounds, and economically marginalized Italians who have suffered the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic. While many individuals support Hummustown philanthropically, including individuals working for other international organizations in Rome, Hummustown is an independent organization not affiliated in any way with any other organization.
