How to Help

Greatest Needs

Looking for ways to help refugees, unaccompanied children or asylum-seekres? Donating is always the best way to support our new neighbors, and our “How to Help” tab will guide you to other top needs. Below are our current greatest needs. Thank you for your support!

Curious about becoming a Foster Parent?

Our foster care programs continue seeking new loving homes for unaccompanied children and refugee youth (URM) in Maryland, Northern Virginia and other neighborhoods in the D.C. metro area. Spanish-speaking families and communities are most welcome! Fill out the form below, and we'll be in touch to answer any questions! 

Interested in renting to a refugee family?

LSSNCA finds housing for recently resettled families and individuals in Northern Virginia and Maryland, and we're always looking to build new relationships with independent landlords, local property management companies, and national real estate partners.

We urgently need the following items - please ship or drop them off at our Resource Center:

  • Men's clothing - all sizes/styles
