CRCKY SERVICES

CONSULTATION WITH AN IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY

CRCKY will pay for the initial consultation with a reputable immigration lawyer, to determine if you qualify for legal assistance.
RENT AND UTILITIES ASSISTANCE
  • Please note that CRCKY can no longer provide rent and utility assistance to new clients.  While we will at time provide short term (one month) assistance to clients who we are already providing legal support to, we are no longer accepting clients who just need rent or utility assistance.

  • To qualify, families MUST already be enrolled in our Pro Se program or be actively working with CRCKY to stabilize their legal status.  They also must have a plan for how to pay for the next month's rent/utilities as we unfortunately cannot provide ongoing assistance.   

  • Assistance is given on a case by case basis. 
FOOD DELIVERIES
 
  • In partnership with Trader Joe's - which generously donates extra food to us -  CRCKY picks up and delivers food to immigrants who do not qualify for other forms of assistance every Saturday.  Many our clients do not have access to transportation and these deliveries are a lifeline.

  • In partnership with the Woodhill International Market, we pick up fresh vegetables and fruits every two weeks during growing season.  Clients then come pick them up at out office.

  • CRCKY also works with God's Pantry and FoodChain to deliver food to clients in Fayette County.

  • For clients outside of Fayette Co., CRCKY will pay for a one-time food delivery from Kroger or ALDI

  • If you are an immigrant in need of food, please call us at 1-800-674-9217.  We collaborate with Trader Joe's to bring fresh produce and meats to clients on Saturday mornings.  While there is a waiting list to receive these weekly food packets, CRCKY can refer you to other organizations in the meantime.  Please look at our "Where to Find Help" resource packet (see yellow button above) to get a list of food options in Lexington, arranged by zip code.

HOUSEHOLD GOODS

Imagine you just fled your home country in genuine fear of being persecuted for your life.  You make it to the U.S. after a grueling journey and you have only the clothes you are wearing.  You have no coat, no closed-toe shoes, and nothing to furnish your apartment with, when you are finally able to get one.   That's why CRCKY keeps gently used coats, shoes, kitchen and small items of furniture in their office.
