When refugee and migrant children arrive in the United States without a parent or loved one to provide the shelter, security and sustenance they deserve, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is there to help them find loving foster homes. We work with partners in 18 communities throughout the country to place unaccompanied children in appropriate care settings.
