Twice a year, the CEOs of 14 organizations convene to share learnings and trends, and talk about how they can collaborate together. As members of the Lutheran Services in America network and nonprofit leaders in their state, these executives find value in gathering on a regular basis to share candid conversation and support.
Patricia Savage, President and CEO of Allegheny Lutheran Social Ministries (ALSM), recently shared some examples from their most recent meeting in November of how the Lutheran community in Pennsylvania is working together, including:
- ALSM works with Lutheran Counseling Services of Chambersburg to provide counseling services in the Centre County area of the state. This program has provided many hours of counseling to people with limited resources.
- In Bedford County, Pennsylvania, ALSM collaborates with the organization Love in the Name of Christ (LOVE, Inc.) to provide transportation services to persons who need specialized transportation to travel to medical appointments or family gatherings.
LSA is always grateful for opportunities to showcase collaboration within the Lutheran community – the strength of our network (the keystone, if you will) is the powerful connections we can make with one another – so we applaud the Keystone State for being collaborative leaders!
