Lutheran Services of Georgia-Refugee and Immigration Services

Site Mission:

At LSG, Candler students will offer support and cultural translation for newly arrived as well as more established refugee families, tutor and mentor children and youth in after-school programs, and assist with literacy programs for adults.

About the Site:

Lutheran (Refugee Resettlement) Services of Georgia (LSG) resettles newly arrived refugee families. It helps prepare the refugee family’s first home, helps them to secure the documents they and their children need for work and school, develops work opportunities for them, and guides them through their first experiences in a new culture. Its ultimate goal is to help the refugee family achieve economic self-sufficiency and successful integration into their new community and new country. This organization is based in Atlanta, GA on Edgewood Drive.
