Start Fresh: Refugee Resettlement in New London
The All Souls UU Congregation of New London, CT has pooled its resources to purchase a home for a family of Syrian refugees, whom they hope will arrive in September. The congregation is working in partnership with the "Start Fresh" refugee resettlement project in New London, which co-sponsors refugee families with the Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS) office in New Haven. This team has already resettled a family of seven in the New London community. The "Start Fresh" intiative began under the impetus of the Greater New London Clergy Association, and has brought together members of the Mystic Congregational Church, Temple Emmanuel, the Islamic Center of New London, the Jewish Federation of Eastern Connecticut, and still other interfaith partners to work in solidarity with refugee families as they build new lives in the New London community.
