VIDEO: Meet Our Team

In November of 2021, LIRS opened a brand new office in Northern Virginia to serve newly arrived Afghans. The office has since grown into a mighty team where 90% of staff are themselves Afghan. As LIRS continues to expand, we look forward to creating more opportunities for new Americans to engage in the work of welcome.
