2. Building Communities in New Hampshire - a conversation with Executive Director, Rick Minard
Building Community in New Hampshire is a multi-ethnic self-help organization that assists refugees in New Hampshire to become American citizens. BCNH, founded in 2009 as the Bhutanese Community of New Hampshire, and based in Manchester, also works with refugee populations to provide the skills and education they need to become "work ready." .
