Resilience in the post-welfare inner city

This chapter considers spatial resilience of immigrant-oriented voluntary sector organizations – and how they enabled resilience socially – set within a predominantly immigrant community space: Pico-Union in Los Angeles and Tower Hamlets borough in London. The two most important immigrant groups in these enclaves are Central Americans and Bangladeshis respectively, and both consider these areas their original settlement hubs. Accordingly, focus was put on the service hubs that have emerged to cater to an immigrant clientele.
