Mission

 

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 been an official nonprofit organization since 2016.
