Celebrating the New Year with a Legacy and a Vision

Published On: Donate

On behalf of all of us at LIRS, we wish you a Happy New Year!

Did you know that 2019 marks 80 years of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service’s (LIRS) existence as a service provider for new and aspiring Americans?

In 1939, Lutherans first opened their hearts and homes to families fleeing conflict during World War II. But today, LIRS is evolving rapidly to respond to the changing needs of the people we serve, guided by a vision of the America we want to represent.

Bearing a legacy that remains powerfully relevant today, our network will not waver in providing protection to refugees and immigrants in America – regardless of the obstacles that may stand before us.

As we enter 2019, LIRS invites you to join us in amplifying this important work. Because, at the heart of every legacy, are people like you who have helped keep the vision alive.

Become part of this movement in the New Year!
