Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska's AmeriCorps program addresses the needs of Nebraska's refugee and immigrant populations. LFS AmeriCorps was recognized as an innovative program for its use of community asset-building to advance self-sufficiency among refugees and immigrants in urban and rural areas. In 2010, it broadened its scope to include services to active military personnel, veterans and their families, and it also placed members at a new facility for low-income and at-risk families.
