Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska is a non-profit, community-based, multi-service human care organization with locations in Nebraska, Council Bluffs Iowa and Wichita. We operate within three core competencies: Children Services, Behavioral Health and Community Services.
LFS demonstrates its mission through three broad service areas:
Children Services - expertise in prevention and early intervention programs and permanency and well-being services.
Community Services - expertise in direct support services for refugees, immigrants, asylees and victims of human trafficking.
Behavioral Health - assistance in identifying and treating abusive and addictive behaviors as well as information, support and coping skills.
I have served as a refugee mentor and helping to set up new refugee families. The setup work is easy and not so time consuming. Mentoring depends greatly on the refugee family. It is very rewarding, but not always easy.
