About

“The group expressed their appreciation for all the support they have been receiving from the International Center, and they requested the Center continue to open doors for the refugees because it is the only place where a refugee can receive proper and prompt attention.”

Meeting of the Congolese community in Bowling Green, August 2012

The International Center of Kentucky is a refugee resettlement agency with Headquarter in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and a site office in Owensboro. Started in 1981 by Marty Deputy, the International Center has helped to resettle over 10,000 refugees, victims of human trafficking, asylees, parolees, and others with similar status, as well as other immigrants from thirty (30) countries around the globe. Working closely with the Department of State and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, the International Center ensures that refugees and other immigrants with such status have a support structure that would enable them fully integrate and thrive in the United States.

Mission:

The mission of the International Center is to address the needs of Refugees and Immigrants in their assimilation and integration into community life, by providing employment, educational, housing, and other social services.
