Restoring a sense of home for people and families who’ve had to leave theirs.
Many immigrants and refugees arrive in the United States with nothing more than the bags they could carry, and resettling is about far more than just finding a place to live. LIRS is committed to walking alongside newcomers as they become valued and empowered members of our community. We do this by helping them find a place to live, connect with services and resources, learn a new language, enroll in school, and meet a new community.
From there, we work with individuals and families to build a strong economic foundation, from financial literacy to employment and job search assistance. We also connect with local employers to build positive hiring and workplace relationships.
"We feel like we can stand on our own feet now."
One year after the war in Ukraine began, LIRS staff traveled to Philadelphia to meet some of the Ukrainians who have been served by our partner office, Bethany Christian Services.
