Refugee Emergency Housing Fund Needs Emergency Assistance
LCFS will assist hundreds of refugees this year, who've fled the U.S. after unimaginable persecution and trauma in their home countries.The biggest struggle, even after they find employment, is paying for housing during their first few months in the U.S.
We are asking for your help to grant families emergency housing. This stipend per family is used soley for those first few months of housing, which is critical for establishing self-sufficiency. Right now, the balance in our Emergency Housing Fund is zero.
