Refugee & Immigrant Resettlement Program

The Refugee & Immigrant Resettlement Program was begun in 1975 as a Point of Entry to help Southeast Asians resettle in the community at the end of the Vietnam War.

Refugee & Immigrant Resettlement remains a core program at ARC and has expanded to keep current with demographic changes in greater Danbury. For the last 3 years, the program has assisted over 6,000 refugees & immigrants in the resettlement process.
