LIRS carries out much of our work in partnership with local service providers across the country. With funding and technical support from LIRS, our local partners help refugees put down roots in new communities and assist vulnerable migrants with legal and practical needs. Through partnerships, we can manage resources to effectively extend the reach of our services and strategically share our strengths and expertise.
Partners also provide expertise and leadership that advance our collective mission to stand with and advocate for migrants and refugees. Annual conferences and retreats provide forums for sharing best practices and encouragement nationwide.
