In this article we analyze the impact that displacement could generate on: a) the displaced’ social support network structure; b) employment, and c) community involvement variables. A comparative study in which are interviewed 62 people living in two low-income areas in Barranquilla city (Colombia) is developed. Half of respondents are displaced. Egocentric network analysis evidenced that people who have a job presents networks geographically diversified. The population interviewed has dense networks in which there is a high overlapping degree. Regarding community involvement indicators, is observed that time of residence is a key factor facilitating the process of identification with the community, and the involvement on participatory activities. Cluster analysis is used to identify two different groups according to 1) the income level, 2) the time who have resided in the destination community and 3) the number of family members with whom they live.
