LSS-SW Refugee Welcome Teams

Congregations reach out to these new Americans not only by helping them furnish their apartment and providing them with a first set of groceries, but also by making them more comfortable as they go through this monumental transition in other ways.

Church cosponsors can help refugee families by supporting them as they learn English, helping them get around the city for appointments and job interviews, or even just by taking them to the library.

Matthew 25 tells us that our service to refugees is a service to the Lord. For us, it is a joy and a privilege to reach out and support the needy and persecuted, and we hope you will join us as partners in service.

Cosponsor a family of newly arrived refugees in your community and embark on a fulfilling journey with your congregation.
