River East Resettlement Alliance

 St. James’ has helped to form a Co-Sponsorship group (RERA) which is made up of multiple faith communities and other organizations in the Glastonbury/Manchester area working together to plan for, welcome, and resettle refugee families.  RERA comprises many committees including Healthcare, Finance, Education, Apartment Set Up, Fundraising, Employment, and Transportation. St. James’ has several people volunteering on RERA committees.

Currently, RERA is working with a family from Syria.  They have been settled in Manchester and are doing extremely well.  RERA is helping the family with learning English, has found employment for the Dad, has enrolled three teens in high school,  and so much more.  RERA will likely resettle another family in the future and will need additional volunteers to support this effort.
