Catholic Charities of Louisville: Response to Executive Order

Catholic Charities of Louisville is disappointed by the recent executive order signed by President Donald J. Trump, which will temporarily halt refugee resettlement in the United States.  While we are aware that this order will affect the services provided by the Catholic Charities Migration and Refugee Services program, we will continue to serve our current clients to the best of our ability, as we to learn how this new policy will affect services.

The United States Refugee Resettlement program is the difference between life and death for those refugees in the most vulnerable parts of the world.  As an agency serving clients for more than 40 years under this program, welcoming people fleeing violence and conflict in various regions of the world is part of our identity since, as a Catholic institution, we are called to protect the vulnerable and recognize the human dignity of all people.
