Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Services (LIRS)

LIRS works with migrants and refugees and many partners in service to resettle refugees through a network of 28 local organizations in 26 states. 16 of those organizations also provide immigration legal services. Asylum seekers, survivors of torture and other migrants impacted by detention are served through 23 partners providing legal and social services including visitation ministry. In addition, we work directly with eight foster care programs at the state level to provide family reunification and foster care services for unaccompanied refugee and immigrant children.
