The group has helped refugees and immigrants in Kansas City since 1999. Their latest program, a partnership between the municipal courts and JVS, hopes to help more refugees and immigrants navigate the legal system and reduce barriers to accessing the services and resources they need.</p> Mon, 21 Nov 2011 22:05:00 +0000 Susan B.
