Start Local

Our local partners coordinate with a wide range of stakeholders, including service providers, local government officials, school districts, churches, volunteers and many others to provide a positive resettlement experience for refugees and their new neighbors.

Working Together

In many cases, the services and partnerships that serve refugees lead to benefits for the entire community, as refugees add their gifts to the mix, and receiving communities find new ways to work together.

One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that so journeth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall
the stranger be before the Lord.”

– Numbers 15:15

COMMUNITY OF WELCOME RESOURCES

Neighbors Together

This Welcoming America toolkit provides promising practices to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim backlash and work towards a positive vision for our communities. These promising practices demonstrate how building meaningful contact between diverse populations, positive communications strategies, and engaging civic and community leaders can help create a climate in which all people can thrive.

My Neighbor Is Muslim

This study guide was created by LIRS (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) for local congregations or other discussion groups to open up a much needed dialogue and build understanding about Islam in local churches and communities.
