THE STORY:

Global Public Health Programs wrote -

Join Quinnipiac students, faculty, and staff from the Global Public Health undergraduate and medical school programs as part of our Run for Refugees fundraising team. This inter-professional and inter-generational team will run in support of IRIS's (Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services) mission of service in resettling refugees in Connecticut. In 2016, around 420 refugees were resettled by IRIS in New Haven and the surrounding area.

Since the organization’s founding in 1982, they have helped to resettle more than 5,000 refugees. IRIS provides a wide array of services to these new Americans including daily English lessons, childcare, assistance with registering children in the local schools, access to health care provided by Yale-New Haven Hospital and a thorough cultural orientation. IRIS works intensively with each new arrival to help find employment by offering resume assistance, a job club, interview assistance and actual job placement. IRIS also provides extra services including a women’s group and a variety of young people’s groups.
