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 wither 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.
CURRENT NEXT STEPS:
Welcome Teams provide churches with an opportunity to welcome newly-arrived refugee families with the love of Christ. Welcome teams are paired with newly arrived refugees to assist with home orientation, employment, budgeting, medical care, education, U.S. cultural orientation and ESL tutoring while sharing the Gospel, hospitality and friendship.
HOME HEALTH AND SAFETY CLASS
Help lead a health and safety orientation for refugee families! Help them navigate an American kitchen and learn important home precaution skills like stove, oven and electricity safety. Enjoy food and fellowship with new international friends while discussing the importance of the family, home and health and safety!
