Abstract

Article on Southeast Asian immigrants and the challenges they face adapting to life in Maine, noting that Greater Portland has roughly 3,000 such residents, mostly Cambodians and Vietnamese. Kathy Harris, assistant program director for Catholic Charities Maine's Refugee and Immigration Services, said that Portland has one of the most unique resettlement programs in the country because it is open to refugees from any country. With comments by Shawna Ohm, community liaison for the Portland Police Department; Pirun Sen, a translator with the Portland Public Schools; and Rotha Chan, a refugee from Cambodia who now works as a senior underwriter at a Kennebunk bank.
