Dear my friends! Please consider supporting IRIS - they are a wonderful org that helps our newest Americans integrate into their adopted communities. I've never been a refugee, but I do know what it's like to be displaced to a foreign place with little grasp of local language and culture. Kindness goes a very, very long way :) Check out the work IRIS does here: http://www.irisct.org/index1.html "IRIS helps hundreds of people each year as they start their lives over, by meeting their basic needs of housing, food, and clothing. We also prepare refugees for independence through English classes, access to health care, help getting a job and children’s educational programs."
