Your tax dollars:
I’ve been meaning for awhile to give our new readers some information that we have written about over the years, and, for longtime readers, this is an update.
Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota, the primary refugee contractor in the state, received $1.2 million of your tax dollars to promote Healthy Fatherhood.
We talk all the time about how non-profit refugee resettlement agencies are paid by the head, by the US State Department, to resettle refugees to your towns and cities.
However, that is only a drop in the bucket when it comes to the millions they get from you for every sort of grant under the sun!
One such program you have funded over the years is the Refugee Healthy Marriage Program.
We told you here in 2013 what we found in the 2009 Office of Refugee Resettlement Annual report to Congress.
I see there are still grants listed on page A-24 of the 2010 Annual Report and a description of how millions of your dollars are educating refugees on how to have healthy marriages beginning on page 21 of the report.
Incidentally, these annual reports are a treasure trove of information for those of you who are digging deeper around the country.
A huge expansion of the Healthy Marriage program occurred in 2010!What is IRCO doing with your money? Wouldn’t you like to know! http://www.irco.org/who-we-are/mission-vision-and-values/
The new program is now called ‘Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood!’ You pay for it!
