KY Refugee Ministries/Lexington
KRM provides resettlement services to refugees admitted through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. In 2018, we hope to welcome ~240 newcomers, and will continue serving hundreds of already-arrived families. Efforts are aimed toward self-sufficiency and successful integration into the community. Recent arrivals originated from DR Congo, Ukraine, Bhutan, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. We proudly serve clients regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation.

In-kind needs are constant, and include hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, deodorant, pads, shampoo, etc), household cleaning supplies, diapers and other baby essentials, winter coats, and gift cards for purchasing food or household items. All of these items help families get and stay on their feet as they are establishing their lives here, looking for employment, and settling. Used furniture and household items in good condition are also welcome, especially of the donor can transport to our storage facility! We warmly welcome donated cars in working condition, and will provide such donations to refugees who can benefit from a vehicle, particularly so that they can obtain (and maintain) employment.
Contact us for more info if you would like to volunteer, donate, or host a donation drive.
