Embrace • Equip • Empower

LSS Community Care has a legacy of meeting the needs of the poor, underserved and powerless regardless of race, creed or orientation since 1946.  We unite with individuals, churches, businesses, civic leaders, government agencies and other stakeholders for one goal; breaking the cycle of poverty one family at a time. Take a moment to explore three key ways LSS serves:

Emergency Services
Serving 250,000 individuals and families with basic needs like food, hot meals, clothing, housing, transportation and more.

Program Resources
Operating over 50 specialized programs offering training that equips individuals and families with tools and resources that move them toward independence.

Circles of Support
Surrounding families with the support they need to move out of poverty and also initiating changes in the community that result in eliminating barriers to economic stability.
