Resettlement agencies in Hartford play a key role in refugee resettlement. These agencies assist with housing, employment and other services. After six months, these agencies no longer receive federal funding to continue services. This project examines the successes and challenges of connecting refugees to services for employment, housing and the pressures that refugees face during the period of resettlement and post-resettlement. Interviews are the methodological focus of this project. The goal of the project is to outline the best practices, challenges and lessons learned from the resettlement process for refugees in Hartford with my community partner, Asylum Hill Neighborhood Association.
