Lutheran Services in Iowa (LSI) will begin resettling up to 500 Afghans within the next 6 months and will continue to resettle other populations in Sioux City and Des Moines (pending approval) after all Afghan individuals have been resettled in the US. The Refugee and Immigrant Services team developed a comprehensive plan for staff, in-kind donations, volunteers, and a fundraising campaign with a goal to raise $500,000.
