Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) is a national faith-based organization with an 80 year history, a budget of approximately $58 million per year, and over 80 staff.
For several decades the organization has received the vast majority of its funding from the federal government and has developed widely-recognized expertise in implementing federal programs on behalf of refugees and migrants living within the borders of the United States. Working with and through partners across the country, LIRS resettles refugees, reunites children with their families or provides loving homes for them, conducts policy advocacy, and pursues humanitarian alternatives to the immigration detention system.
