Integrating Refugees into American Life

Scott Cole ’06 currently works with immigrant and refugee families in Boston. He updates us on what he's been up to since graduating.

I graduated in 2006 with a B.A. in biblical and theological studies. I now work with immigrant and refugee families living in affordable housing, primarily with families in difficult financial and social situations, helping them find jobs, food, educational resources and support as they integrate into American life. The other important part of my work is trying to build bridges between the Islamic and Christian community here in Boston. I am partnering with churches and individuals who desire to love and understand our Muslim neighbors.
