Samaritas helped resettle 1,400 refugees in 2016. This year, it expects to help 100.

Mar 1, 2018

In 2016, the refugee resettlement agency Samaritas helped some 1,400 refugees find new homes and new lives in Michigan.

This year, they expect to receive 100 refugees. That drop has meant big changes for refugee resettlement agencies all around Michigan.

Samaritas president Vickie Thompson-Sandy joined Stateside today to explain why Samaritas is experiencing this drop, what it means for refugees who rely on Samaritas for support and services, and what would happen if things change in the future, and we see more refugees in Michigan again.
