Resettlement Agencies & Resources

The following local agencies assist with resettlement of refugees in the United States:

Lutheran Family Services (LFS) Services is a program of Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska that provides services to refugees before, during, and after their arrival, including resettlement and employment services. LFS prepares for a refugee's arrival and helps them obtain needed services such as English classes, cultural orientation, employment services, appointments with the Health Department and Social Services.

Refugee Empowerment Center (REC)
The Refugee Empowerment Center assists refugees who are transitioning from their own culture to American life. REC focuses on helping refugees live and work productively, further their education, and achieve a better life for themselves and their children. Their goal is to empower refugees to integrate into their new homes and obtain the skills necessary for economic self-sufficiency.
