Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota – Refugee Services
Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota expresses the love of Christ for all people through service that inspires hope, changes lives, and builds community.
Minnesota has a long and proud tradition of helping refugees find safety and establish new lives in our community, dating back to World War II.
Today’s refugees come from many parts of the world, including Afghanistan, Burma (Myanmar), Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Iraq, and Somalia. While the countries change over the years, the human needs are the same. Refugee families we serve have escaped war, religious persecution and violence in their homes — living through what most of us could not imagine, including starvation, desperation in refugee camps and sickness with limited to no medical care.
When refugees arrive in Minnesota, they come with very little — usually what they can fit in a suitcase and the clothes they are wearing. They need a place to live, a job to sustain their families and emotional support to recover from losses and traumatic experiences they have endured.
