Excerpt:

The successful settlement and integration of im­migrants and refugees is a multifaceted, complex, and long-term process that requires the dedica­tion and involvement of both newcomers and the community in which they settle. Arriving to a new home is overwhelming for newcomers, es­pecially if they lack strong social connections in the new place and have few financial resources. Having access to well-rounded and holistic sup­ports can help to ease the stresses for newly ar­rived immigrants and refugees.
