In 2016 the Lutheran Services in America network moved forward with new boldness and energy. Thanks to contributions to the LSA 20-500 Fund our network deepened its collaboration—both among members and with external partners—leading to the replication of successful strategies and programs.
Together we are creating better, stronger and more resilient communities. And with a unified voice, we are increasing our advocacy on behalf of our nation’s most vulnerable people.
Twenty years ago Lutheran social ministry organizations—along with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod—united to form Lutheran Services in America. Today our network provides services to seniors, children, youth and families, refugees, people with disabilities, veterans and those affected by disasters—making a difference in the lives of one in 50 Americans every year. The work takes place in communities rural and urban and serves all people—regardless of faith, race, ethnicity or background.
As we look to the future we remain united—united in our mission to strengthen communities and to ensure that all people can live abundant lives. We thank you for your support of our mission, our work and our commitment to the people we walk alongside.
