Afghan refugees often arrive in Clark County with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Some come alone. Others come as families, from a multi-generational family of 12, to a single mother and her two daughters.

Whatever their circumstances, Lutheran Community Services Northwest resettles them. The organization has so far assisted 61 Afghan refugees by helping them navigate social services, housing and employment.
