Danbury Area Refugee Assistance (DARA)
is a nonprofit organization that resettles refugee families,
providing advocacy and support as they work toward self-sufficiency
to become productive members of our community.
What we do
Initially, DARA assists refugee families for 4 to 6 months while they establish themselves with jobs, enroll in school, and become familiar with life in America.
Who we are
Originally a collection of neighbors — strangers to one another before our first meeting — DARA has grown into an official nonprofit organization.
