Since 1917, Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area (LSS/NCA) has aided the most vulnerable among us and since World War II, it has resettled thousands of displaced persons and refugees fleeing war, mayhem and persecution. The direct implications of the President's recent Executive Orders and the Supreme Court's decision to reinstate portions of the Travel Ban are still being evaluated as the situation continues to evolve. The impact on our refugee brothers and sisters is clear: at a time when the world faces one of its largest refugee crises, thousands of refugees could be denied the opportunity for the freedom, safety, and prosperity that has defined generations of immigrants and new American citizens.
Every donor, congregation, community partner, staff member, and volunteer plays an integral role in restoring hope for the refugees we serve. Together, we will continue to welcome and embrace our neighbors. By doing so, we live our faith and demonstrate the love and compassion that has defined our call to service and our organization for 100 years.
