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 are several ways you can be involved with the resettlement initiative. 

  • Make a charitable contribution that will help pay for housing, and important social services to help the families become successfully self sufficient.
  • Provide permanent housing for a refugee family.

  • Make in-kind donations of household goods for the families' homes
  • Volunteer your time
