Empowering New Americans

Beyond initial refugee resettlement, LIRS is committed to empowering the refugees and migrants we serve to be leaders in their communities and cultural ambassadors. Over many years, we have seen firsthand how new Americans contribute to a vibrant and resilient society, culturally, politically, and economically.

LIRS has motivated and inspired me to be committed to refugee services and has made me more passionate and created a vision in my heart.
