What do we do?
We primarily do fundraising for local non-profits so they have time to focus on providing services to our community. However, we also help with connecting resources. When a business has goods to donate, we help place those donations. When someone needs help, we direct them to an organization that can provide them with food, utility assistance, etc. We also work with other organizations to overcome obstacles that our community is facing. Right now our focus is literacy and housing.
LUTHERAN FAMILY SERVICES PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
"I have been a client at Lutheran Family Services (LFS) since last fall. After amputation, my head had decided that it had finally endured enough and I needed to get help for some issues.
I was extremely skeptical at first, but with the help of LFS (and an extremely patient therapist), I have started to regain the confidence and stability that I once had."
