We Are OneLSS

Called to Serve. Empowered to Act. Inspired to Lead. With You, We Ignite the Flame of Unlimited Potential.

People Need People. LSS Welcomes Refugees.

Let them know that you’re listening.

LSS is very close to welcoming – and providing resettlement services for –hundreds of refugees and Afghan evacuees. We have been at the forefront for 40 years supporting refugees during humanitarian crises, such as the one that has unfolded in Afghanistan.

Your immediate help is needed

Your support today will allow LSS to create belonging and empower independence for individuals and families who were forced to flee their homeland because of war and persecution. In fact, many Afghan evacuees who are now in the U.S. seeking resettlement include courageous people who have risked their lives to support U.S. interests for nearly 20 years.

The more dollars we raise the more people LSS can serve. Please click the donate button on this page to make an online gift or text LSSREFUGEE to 41444 using your mobile phone. We also need Co-Sponsor groups, in-kind donations and volunteers. Click here for ways to help.
