This is the story of Kentucky Refugee Ministries, a resettlement agency based in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky.
Shopping for Refugees
Refugees depend on the generous donations of people like you to assist them in rebuilding their lives.
Help Refugee Families
We have many families in need of additional assistance.
Because of this grant from the Kentucky Arts Council, the elders were able to do many exciting activities throughout this past year!
Donate to help KRM and the refugees of KRM by supporting Kieran Waigel’s Boy Scout Eagle project.
