Catholic Charities of Louisville Migration and Refugee Services is one of the three refugee resettlement agencies here in Louisville, and we are honored to get to do great work to help people who have been through some of the worst the world has to offer start to rebuild a life here in our great city.
Our arrival numbers are growing exponentially with the expectations of resettling over 200 refugees this summer. In order to do this, we are seeking out support through a program we are re-launching called Welcome Teams. A Welcome Team is a community of people who work together to help support the refugees in their first 90 days in Louisville through housing set-up, transportation, and most importantly friendship!
I think Unity would be an incredible partner for us as we work to make Louisville a more welcoming and inclusive city.
If you think anyone in your congregation would be interested in forming a Welcome Team, or if you are interested in any other ways you could partner with the refugee community here in Louisville please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to sit down and chat about how a partnership could work between our organizations!
Thank you so much!
