Inside Dorcas International
Speaker: Kathleen Cloutier

Refugees and immigrants from Muslim-majority countries face many challenges as they reset-tle in Rhode Island: from securing housing and getting kids enrolled in school to dealing with cultural intolerance, learning English, and finding jobs. Kathleen provides an insider’s view of the current refugee crisis and what Dorcas International is doing to empower both individuals and families.

Kathleen Cloutier is Executive Director of Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island, the state’s leading nonprofit organization offering advocacy and client-centered services – including legal assistance and adult education – to refugees, immigrants, and the native-born.


The Women’s Alliance was established in 1882 and continues to be to serve the community, both locally and at large, to provide friendship and spiritual and cultural stimuli for its members, and to support the church and its denomination. The business meeting starts at 10:00 AM, followed by a program at 11:00 AM which is open to everyone who is interested, and concludes with a delicious catered luncheon beginning at noon ($10).  Contact: Nori Duncan, Alliance President nori.duncan@gmail.com
