World Refugee Day - June 20th

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

In 2000, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) designated June 20 as an annual opportunity to remember the world’s refugees. Each year, LIRS and our partners hold a variety of events to remember the perilous journeys of refugees and to celebrate the accomplishments of refugees who make a fresh start in the United States. 

Last fiscal year, Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains, provided refugee resettlement services for 1,678 individuals. Providing quality services for this many people not only requires dedicated employees but countless volunteers and donations.
