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


From making community events known, to facilitating neighbor meetings, RAISE is the glue that ties the Joplin community to the one that is built naturally with refugees and immigrants. Some of the community connection that RAISE builds is with:

  • Civic Dialogues

  • Local Government

  • Law Enforcement

  • Emergency Services

  • Business Leaders

  • Voting Information

our focus


RAISE strives to form a whole, multicultural community that is inclusive and helpful for not just refugees and immigrants, but also for those who have called Joplin home their whole lives.
