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.
