Fort Worth Service Center

The RST Fort Worth office was founded in 1996 and is affiliated with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. Since its inception, RST Fort Worth has provided resettlement services to more than 2,500 refugees, asylees, and other displaced persons. The Fort Worth Service Center has recently moved its operations to la Gran Plaza in south Fort Worth.

Services

RST Fort Worth offers programs to assist refugees and other populations with basic needs and services during their initial resettlement to the U.S. Refugee clients are also provided with case management and financial assistance while they work to meet the challenges of transitioning to the local community. FW now offers counseling and group psycho-social therapy through a partnership with MHMR Refugee Services Program. Visit our About Us page to learn more!
