THE REFUGEE’S JOURNEY

Swipe through the journey

It usually takes 3-5 year for a
refugee to enter the United States.

Providing Material Goods and Simple Skills

Most refugees fly for the first time and step foot into a new city they're expected to call home without a basic knowledge of where to go to get access to the things they need. City of Refuge provides Basic Need Services, such as access to clothing, food, household items and navigating complex refugee paperwork to provide a space for refugees to rest and recover from their journey.

Supporting Trauma Survivors

Most, if not all, refugees experience trauma to some degree because of civil unrest, war, persecution or displacement. City of Refuge offers free PTSD/Trauma Counseling Services from Licensed Counselors to the refugee women, men, and children who have been placed in our community. This service is vital to helping those who were heavily impacted by trauma to recover and move forward.

Building Skills that Last

Many refugees come from vastly different backgrounds and the skills they have may not translate to the work available in Mid-Missouri. Developing professional skills is a vital step in helping the refugees become productive and successful members of our community. City of Refuge offers career exploration services, job coaching, English classes, Driver's Education courses, tutoring, and many more to help them regain control of their lives.
