Community Matters – Afghan Refugee Resettlement Program

Gini King and Claudia Buzzi co-founded Shoreline Interfaith Resettlement (a part of First Church Guilford) as a direct response to the ongoing Afghan refugee crisis.  In collaboration with Integrated Refugee & immigrant Services (IRIS) in New haven, the team handled the logistics for a refugee families including healthcare, school enrollment and employment.  A $5,000 grant from The Guilford Foundation has been critical in helping offset the costs of this invaluable assistance.
