Refugee Resettlement Partners

Since Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service’s inception in 1939 we have helped over 500,000 refugees build new lives in the United States. Thanks to our nationwide network of local resettlement partners, their caseworkers and community volunteers, refugees receive the support they need to find welcome and success in American communities.
