Refugee Resettlement

Since 1974, our structured program for refugee resettlement has started more than 10,000 refugees on a new life in the U.S. As the Wisconsin affiliate of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, LSS provides comprehensive resettlement services to refugees fleeing from war and persecution around the globe.

Currently, LSS has the capacity to welcome and resettle 500 refugees per year within a 50-mile radius of Milwaukee. Our program provides high-quality services, including initial housing, food, clothing, school enrollment for children, English lessons, and assistance with job placement.

We actively seek donations to help keep our Refugee Resettlement Program operating at full capacity and ready to respond in emergency situations. Any contribution you can make will help us assist refugees as they become independent, vibrant members of our communities.
