Pennsylvania's largest refugee resettlement program is slated to close next month

Lutheran Children and Family Services helps to settle about 100 refugees a year in the Lehigh Valley, but it plans to shutdown at the end of next month due to a lack of funding.

The not-for-profit will end most of its social services by June 30.  The Christian charity claims insufficient funding from Harrisburg created "insurmountable deficits."

It says it was not receiving enough money to cover the cost of placing immigrant children into permanent housing.
