Career Opportunities and Resources for Employment (CORE) Supports Region’s Immigrants

People from all over the world call our region home. And many of our region’s employers have a global footprint.

Did you know that our region is also home to Kentucky’s only field office for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, as well as the Kentucky office of Refugee Resettlement?

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has often spoke of being a welcoming and inclusive community that supports all of our international citizens from “refugee to PhD.”

The city’s Career Opportunities and Resources for Employment (CORE) program brings career resource opportunities to the increasing number of foreign born-residents throughout the region.
