Engaging Communities

LIRS’ deep roots in communities across the country form a vast and intricate network of welcome–a safety net that serves to protect and embrace refugees and migrant families when they most need our support. Working with congregations, grassroots advocates, and compassionate individuals, LIRS has developed a number of initiatives and opportunities to bring communities together in support of new Americans.


Together, we welcome families at the airport; we visit families in detention; and we challenge political leaders to uphold the legacy and the values upon which this country was built.

“Our partnership with LIRS has been a rich blessing to our community. The Afghan family we have been assisting has been an inspiring witness to the values of faith, family, and community.
