Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Dozens of Haitian evacuees are expected to move to Kentuckiana in the coming weeks.
 

Two are already calling Louisville home after the horrific earthquake.
 

The Kentucky Refugee Ministries in the Highlands are caring for them.
 

A mother and daughter are being treated for injuries including a hip fracture.
 

They were forced to leave behind their family in Haiti.
 

Now they're getting financial help and a work visa to live in the U.S.  for two years.
 

"What we do is set them up in an apartment, get their initial paperwork together. We help them get health screenings and any added medical care they need," says Liz Kaznak of Kentucky Refugee Ministries.
 

The two will live in the south end of Louisville for now.
