The Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) opened a new branch office in Mankato in April 2012 to help provide a system of supports for the growing refugee population. Over the past decade, Mankato has become home to an increasing number of secondary refugees, refugees who have migrated to Mankato from all across the US in search of a better life for their family in Minnesota. MCC Mankato Area Refugee Services supports refugees and former refugees as they seek to establish lives full of hope and opportunity in Mankato. We support refugee community integration and transition to self-sufficiency by providing the following services: Case Management, Job Placement (must be state eligible), Immigration adjustment, and Community Engagement and Outreach services.
Help a new family furnish their first home in America. We collect donations of furniture and household items year round.
