Refugee Resettlement

New American Services works with the U.S. government to help refugees establish a home in North Dakota after they are approved for admittance into the country.

ND accepts refugees each year and helps to settle them in Fargo, West Fargo, Grand Forks and Bismarck. The goal is to help refugees achieve economic self-sufficiency as soon as possible.


Lutheran Social Services has been resettling refugees since 1946, beginning with Eastern Europeans displaced after WWII. From that time forward, through the resettlement of Indo-Chinese in the 1970s to the present resettlement of refugees from the continents of Africa and Asia, Lutheran Social Services New Americans has provided healing, help and hope to the world’s most vulnerable people.
