Lutheran Services Carolinas to Serve Refugees in Greenville, SC
Written By: Lutheran Services Carolina
Lutheran Services Carolinas is opening a new refugee services program in Greenville, South Carolina. The new program will serve legal refugees from around the world, including Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders from Afghanistan, the allies who supported U.S. troops. LSC will begin providing services as soon as new teammates are hired and office space is secured.
The expansion of services requests were approved by the U.S. Office of Population, Refugees, and Migration.
In collaboration with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), LSC has a long history of supporting refugees on their journey to self-sufficiency in this country, including welcome at the airport upon arrival, food and shelter, transportation, medical care, school enrollment, employment services, and cultural assimilation.
