About Lutheran Community Services Northwest: Refugee Resettlement Program
223 N Yakima Ave, Tacoma, WA 98403, US
Lutheran Community Services Northwest partners with individuals, families, and communities for health, justice and hope.
Agency: Lutheran Community Services Northwest (LCSNW) is a non-profit human services agency serving communities throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Our caring staff provides a wide variety of services to adults, adolescents, children, families, schools, businesses, congregations, neighborhoods and communities. We are privileged to touch the lives of people of all ages, cultures and faiths.
Refugee Resettlement Program: Refugees are people who have fled their country of origin because they are persecuted for being of a particular race, religion, nationality, political opinion or social group (1951 Refugee Convention). Refugees have faced and survived immense hardship, often demonstrating remarkable resilience. We see that resilience in the lives of those who have resettled in the United States. Families are given an opportunity to start life over in a safe place and begin the process of healing and regaining hope. Multicultural Community Services (MCS), a program of LCSNW, is contracted with the U.S Department of State to help refugees rebuild their homes and their lives. Since 1975, MCS has resettled over 35,000 refugees from all over the world, helping them become self-sufficient and integrated into the culture and community of King, Snohomish and Pierce Counties. Though refugees have lost nearly everything - they rebuild - becoming a vital, contributing force in our diverse communities.
We'll work with your schedule.
