Break Description

Join us as we head to Louisville, Kentucky to work with the Migrant and Refugee Services (MRS) branch of Catholic Charities! Catholic Charities Louisville works tirelessly to assist a wide range of community members with services such as adoption services, language services, mother/infant care, and refugee resettlement. The MRS branch aids refugees from over 30 different countries and has played a major role in resettling 10,000 individuals escaping persecution for religious or political beliefs. The goal of MRS is to build a relationship between the community and individuals seeking a safer life. By engaging the public, MRS maximizes the chances of a successful transition from a refugee to a self-sufficient community member. Our group will be helping MRS with a variety of tasks, including teaching English as a second language and assisting with apartment set-ups for newly arrived refugees. Help us break barriers and bring hope to men, women, and children beginning a new journey in Louisville!
