Our passion to love refugees is carried out by providing a community network of support upon
their initial arrival in Louisville. We partner with an Impact Real Estate company, Launch
International, to create community and provide housing for families. Local churches serve families
who are either resettling or relocating to our city by constructing welcome teams who commit to
creating a positive, welcoming space for the family’s arrival and to being a helpful resource and
loving influence as families make Louisville their home.
Loving in Action
Very tangible, short-term commitments are the best way to introduce more people to refugees
Helping with refugees’ arrival provides an open invitation into their world, rather than hoping to get an opportunity to meet and form a relationship later.
Refugees’ initial relationships in the city significantly shapes their ongoing experience and perspective.
Churches will be able to better help refugees long-term through relationships that are already well established.
Join a team that is assigned to a refugee family that is new to the States. Welcome and journey
alongside them to help them adjust to life in this new culture. A simple visit to their home or a
trip to the grocery store could help to fill in the gaps in the transition process.
