KC for REFUGEES

Friends welcoming people in need to our city.

The Embrace Refugees website provides an excellent description of the refugee resettlement process and it describes the many ways in which refugees enrich our nation through their presence.

Our vision is to provide a unified platform for diverse communities to help create a welcoming environment for refugees moving to and living in the greater Kansas City area. Our approach to success is to:

  • EDUCATE community groups and organizations on the refugee settlement process at national and local levels.
  • CONNECT community groups both with local refugees and with each other.
  • SUPPORT refugees by working with local agencies and encouraging people to donate time, funds and household items.
  • DEVELOP alliances with regional and national organizations who are working towards the same vision.

OUR STORY

“Friends welcoming people in need to our city.”

We are an interfaith organization that seeks to unite all who have a passion for welcoming and supporting those who have been forced to flee their home countries and settle here in the greater Kansas City area. The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has designated Della Lamb Community Services, Jewish Vocational Services and Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas as UNHCR agencies in the greater Kansas City area and we work closely with them to coordinate the refugee support activities. In addition, we are affiliated with or serve in partnership with International Rescue Committee, RefugeesareWelcome.org and Syrian Relief and Development.
