Supporting refugees in our community

Worcester Interfaith hosted a meeting on Thursday,  March 17 to for  members from various religious houses
of worship to consider the problems of refugees coming into the Greater Worcester community every month.
Twenty-six individuals attended and shared their experiences.  Refugees require assistance,  but the
emphasis is on integration into the community and giving assistance to make them become independent
and part of our social fabric.  A second meeting is planned for May 5.  Further details will be discussed
at that time with specific information on how individuals and houses of worship can be of assistance.
