Refugee Resettlement - Help Now Needed!

From Don WeberWe are expecting a refugee family in the very near future, and there are now a number of committees that will help to settle them. I will list the committees below and if you have interest in any of them, please email me at mdweb27@me.com, and I will put you in touch with the committee chair so that you may participate in the committee's activities.

The Committees are:
  • Housing-identify and arrange for housing
  • Clothing/furnishings-obtain, usually through donations, clothing and household furnishings 
  • Finance-establish family budget, help to obtain bank accounts/insurance, maintaining records of contributions in support of the family and related disbursements
  • Interfacing with government agencies-Social security, CT Dept. of Social Services, etc.
  • ESL-enable and teach English
  • Education-Ensure the entire family is able to pursue appropriate educational opportunities
  • Transportation-initially help to drive family as necessary and possibly eventually obtaining a car
  • Health-facilitate the family receiving appropriate medical services
  • Employment Assistance-provide support to family members to obtain and succeed in a job
  • Acculturation-integrate the family into American society
Those who volunteered when we resettled the Iraqi family several years ago found the experience both interesting and rewarding!
