Imagine being forced to flee your country due to fear of being tormented or even killed for who you are and what you believe. You must leave the place you call home, the family and friends that you love, your job and familiar surroundings. This is the story for the nearly 400 refugees who are resettled by Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas each year.


A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country due to persecution, war or violence.  A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.  Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so.  War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are the leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries.


Catholic Charities is the largest resettlement site throughout Kansas.  It is a “U.S. tie site,” meaning that refugees are united with family members or friends who are already settled in the area and can provide assistance.  The majority of refugees that we serve flee from Burma, located in Southeast Asia.  Ethnic groups represented include Chin, Karen and the Karenni.  Other refugees travel from Bhutan, Iraq, Somalia, Congo, Eritrea and Iran.

Refugee & Immigration Services


Provides inexpensive professional legal services to low-income, foreign-born individuals and their families. It is staffed by an experienced bilingual (Spanish/English) immigration attorney and a bilingual Board of Immigration Accredited Representative. 



Offers free intensive classes based on the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (U.S.C.I.S.) 100 civics questions for the naturalization test, along with citizenship application assistance and one-on-one interview preparation.



Operates a training farm with Cultivate KC where refugees utilize their agricultural skills to develop their own farm businesses to sustain their families and build a healthy, community food system.



Assists families with employment by removing barriers, providing job readiness classes, finding and retaining jobs, increasing employability and enhancing the refugee job market.



Offers courses on English Language Learning (ELL), Cultural Orientation and Job Readiness training. Students practice English skills to assist with life as they adjust to a new culture and homeland.



When you donate these items, Catholic Charities gives items in good condition directly to new refugee families of all faiths to help them furnish their home after their arrival to the Kansas City area.



The Refugees and Immigration Services  brochure in Adobe PDF format provides details about the program that you can download to print and share.
