Worcester Community Project Center


The project delivered a Resource Guide to the Shalom Neighborhood Center of Worcester. The Center serves refugees. The Resource Guide contains names, contact information and services offered by 27 refugee support organizations in the city. The project interviewed representatives of these organizations and refugees to obtain relevant information. Refugee advisors will use the Guide to help clients find and access services on an as-needed basis. The project found that networks among refugee support organizations are weak or non-existent.
