Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest, Refugee Resettlement Program
Since 1970, LSS-SW has provided comprehensive resettlement and adjustment services to help thousands of refugees fleeing social, political and religious persecution. Our resettlement staff reflects the diversity of arriving refugee populations and speaks over 25 languages. We help new arrivals acquire the basic necessities for starting life anew, such as: food, clothing, medical care, a first apartment, furniture, personal items and meaningful employment.
Our primary goal is to help refugees adjust to life in America and become self-sufficient as quickly as possible. LSS-SW works closely with church co-sponsors, community groups and family anchors to provide the resources necessary for the successful integration and independence of refugee families
