The Chin Organization of Northern Kentucky is a social services organization founded by Chin refugees from Burma. We offer a variety of programs and services to help Chin refugees transition to life in a new country and accomplish their goals. We also aim to provide resources to help organizations learn how to work with this growing community.
The mission of the Chin Organization of Northern Kentucky is to improve the quality of life for Chin refugees from Burma living in Northern Kentucky.
More than 500 Chin people live in Northern Kentucky, primarily in Crescent Springs, Fort Mitchell, and Villa Hills. These small cities are part of the Cincinnati, Ohio metropolitan area and are within a 15-minute drive of downtown Cincinnati. Chin Refugees come to Kentucky for the same reasons many people do: find good jobs, access high-quality education, and be part of a strong community.
The Chin Organization of Northern Kentucky provides the following services:
- ESL: Volunteers serve the Chin community by helping them improve their English communication skills.
- Employment Services: We help members of the Chin community to secure meaningful employment and become self-sustaining.
- Immigration Services: We assist members of the Chin community with immigration-related needs and taking next steps, such as obtaining green cards or citizenship. We assist with interpretation and transportation, but do not provide lawyer-based services at this time.
- Social Services: More information to come…
