CRCKY is a nonprofit, created to help immigrants in Kentucky negatively impacted by the complex and often hard to navigate US immigration system. We provide individuals and families with direct assistance, using interpreters whenever needed. Whenever possible, we also give referrals to trusted community partners.
CRCKY helps client with the many needs arising from being an immigrant in the U.S. As much as possible, we strive to provide wraparound care for our clients. CRCKY pays for a consultation with an immigration lawyers when legal help is needed. We deliver weekly food packages to clients, refer those clients we cannot deliver to to other food sources, arrange for transportation, supply gently used clothes and household goods to those who need it, connect clients with medical and mental health services and even pay for US citizen children of immigrant parents to get a passport.
CRCKY also provides educational activities, to provide factual information to clients and to the general public about local resources, worldwide migration, and US immigration.
If you are an asylum seeker, filing for TPS, or on Humanitarian Parole you may in some cases qualify for free health insurance through Medicaid, and food assistance through a program called SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.). Receiving help from these programs will NOT affect your real status and asylum/TPS application. For more information, click here. (Multilingual support is available.)
