Hire a Refugee | LIRS


Does your company or organization want to hire a refugee?

Refugee employees are legally authorized to work and bring a depth of experience and education to their work. Hiring refugees creates a diverse, adaptable workforce with greater capacity for innovation and global perspective. 

We encourage you to use the resources below to learn more about how to hire refugee employees and to get in touch with organizations that connect refugees and employers. LIRS is a preferred implementing partner, too, with Tent Partnership for Refugees, which connects refugees with employment and networking opportunities. Read our U.S. Employers’ Guide to Hiring Refugees

Please fill out the form below to begin the process of hiring refugee employees. We look forward to working with you.


Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service operates within a large national network of service providers. When we receive inquiries from employers, we most often refer them to our local partners, who can then connect with them about opportunities and potential employees.

Please see our map of partner organizations below.
