South Windsor Refugee Alliance

We heard the cry...

Then the small voice within...

And now we CAN LOOK BACK and be proud that we helped a family get back on their feet after a terrible ordeal.  Many were part of the magic.

Individuals, churches, synagogues, mosques and non-faith-based community groups are answering  the call to help refugees resettle throughout Connecticut. 

While SWRA is on hiatus, there are many opportunities for individuals to help.

Co-sponsors secure affordable housing, collect furniture and other household items, help refugees access public benefits (HUSKY/Medicaid, SNAP/food stamps, and TFA/cash assistance for eligible families).


Co-sponsors also enroll children in school, facilitate job searches, and perform other necessary tasks.
