Redefining home with renewed possibilities.
Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) is the largest faith-based nonprofit dedicated to serving immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees in the United States.
With decades of experience supporting immigrants and refugees, LIRS is well-equipped to welcome those who have faced conflict and persecution.
Our team has developed an incredible slate of innovative programs and services to support and empower New Americans. Through the years, that expertise has impacted and continues to influence public policy in the best interests of those we serve.
Our roots are planted in the foundation of support and dignity.
From the very beginning, we’ve been an organization of help. During World War II, the first iteration of LIRS provided assistance and services for refugees from Germany and Eastern Europe.View Our History
