In 2021, even in the midst of the crisis in Afghanistan, Samaritas welcomed over 1500 refugees. In 2022 we will welcome many more than that, thanks to your work of donations, co-sponsorship, and prayers! As Ukrainian refugees continue to arrive, as well as those from many other countries, we will need your support to continue to welcome them home to Michigan.
Family Preservation Program
In the Family Preservation program, over 90% of the families served were successful in not needing to utilize foster care! This program continues to grow and achieve the goal of helping families reunite and stay together.
Introducing...Legacy Adoption Services
The former Lutheran Adoption Services has become Legacy Adoption Services. This decision was made out of great concern and care to serve as many children as possible without barriers. This also respects the history of Lutheran Adoption Services originally being a merger of the ELCA
and Missouri Synod Lutheran churches.
