Refugee Services - Through the powerful act of welcome, MCC Refugee Services extends hope and support to people with refugee and asylee status. Our holistic programs honor the dignity of persecuted people and offer them the tools they need to make Minnesota home. From our first meeting at the airport to celebrating their citizenship oath, we provide employment, health, social, and legal services that help families build a firm foundation. Community involvement and education is a key element of our work, providing avenues for individuals and churches seeking tangible opportunities to 'welcome the stranger'.
