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

Loving refugees:

  • 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.



Welcome teams

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.
