Omahan and Afghan refugee Feroz Mohmand and his son.

We need your help to welcome refugees from Afghanistan when they arrive.

As servants on earth, it is our privilege and duty to extend our concern and compassion to all who are in need. As an organization, Lutheran Family Services stands ready to receive Afghan allies and refugees seeking safety and security in the U.S. Our role is to help them find safety, hope and well-being. That means helping them with a place to live and furnishings, clothes, food, transportation, and meeting all of the daily needs that so many of us take for granted.
