Every year, millions of people are driven from their homes and communities by armed conflict, gross human rights violations, and fear of persecution. They risk desert heat, defy the dangers of crossing borders, brave choppy seas and endure the squalor of refugee camps – all for the chance to live in freedom and peace. We are called to respond to these people in need. In 2014, Lutheran Family Services (LFS) welcomed 605 of these adults and children to Nebraska.
St. Margaret Mary parish is working to support LFS and their refugee resettlement program. We have established a small group of parishioners who will help you get involved, to the extent you are interested or able, in helping some of these newly arrived families adjust to their new home. Simply fill out the form below and we’ll contact you to see how we can help you get involved.
For more information on the process of helping, follow this link to the Lutheran Family Services Refugee Services website. We look forward to hearing from you!
