In partnership with the City of Northampton, Catholic Charities, is excited to receive and resettle fifty-one refugees this year in Northampton.
We look forward to working with area non-profit organizations, city officials, Smith College, local employers, and Northampton residents help refugee families rebuild their lives in our community.
“There is no power greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”
— Margaret Wheatley
