About 700 refugees resettled in west Michigan this past fiscal year - a number that's stayed fairly consistent in recent years, with some expecting an increase coming into 2016.

Inside that number is a diverse group of individuals and families, from at least a dozen different countries and cultures. On this month's Gifts for the Greater Good: Philanthropy in West Michigan, WGVU's Hilary Farrell speaks to a number of non-profit agencies providing initial resettlement as well as longer-term support.

Hilary is a General Assignment and Enterprise reporter for WGVU Public Media. She joined WGVU in September 2014 after several years of experience as a local news reporter, anchor and photojournalist in Midland, Saginaw and Bay counties. She's also worked as a financial and business reporter and audio field producer.
