#refugeeswelcome

The mission of IRIS is to help refugees and other displaced people establish new lives, regain hope, and contribute to the vitality of Connecticut’s communities.

Refugees are men, women, and children who have fled persecution in their home countries and have been invited by the federal government to start new lives in the US.  In 2016, IRIS welcomed 530 refugees to Connecticut-- more than double any other year!  About half of those clients came from Syria; others came from Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, and Sudan. IRIS meets their basic needs—housing, food, furniture and household goods, clothing, and medication—as well as services to help them integrate into the community and become economically self-sufficient. IRIS provides intensive, culturally competent case management; daily English class with on-site early childhood education; healthcare coordination; wellness programs including mental health services and social groups; employment services; education and youth services; and immigration legal services.

Thank you for joining us in welcoming refugees to start their lives again in peace and freedom!

 

IRIS's legal name is Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, Inc. and our 501(c)3 status is under that name.
