Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) opened an office in Mankato in 2012 to help provide a system of supports for the growing refugee population. Over the past few decades, Mankato has become home to an increasing number of secondary refugees, refugees migrating to Mankato from their initial place of U.S. resettlement, to permanently call Mankato home. MCC Mankato Refugee Services supports local refugees and former refugees residing in Blue Earth and Nicollet counties. MCC's services support family stability and self-sufficiency through four lines of service: community navigation, immigration adjustment, health connections, and community engagement services.
