Danbury Area Refugee Assistance is a nonprofit founded to help in the resettlement and acclimation of refugees to Connecticut.  DARA is hosting a volunteer drive and general meeting on Sunday as the group continues planning for their 2018 initiatives.  A member of Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty's team plans to join them for the meeting

 

The organization was started in 2015 in response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria and assisted a family in the resettlement process in March 2016.

 

The family is now fully self-sufficient, except for the occasional ride to a store or appointment.  Three adults are gainfully employed and the children are entering year 2 of school.

 

Sunday's meeting will be held at "A Common Ground" in Danbury at 2pm.
