The goal of RAISE in community engagement is to make it easier for refugees and immigrants to integrate into their communities. 


From making community events known, to facilitating neighbor meetings, our goal is to provide the bridging between an entire community to the one that is built naturally with refugees and immigrants. RAISE will provide information on and steps to get involved in the following.

  • Civic Dialogues

  • Local Government

  • Law Enforcement

  • Emergency Services

  • Business Leaders

  • Voting Information

our focus


RAISE will be striving to help form a whole, multicultural community that is inclusive and helpful for future refugees and immigrants of all nationalities.


We will be doing this by making it easier for existing refugees and immigrants to acculturate in Joplin communities.
