Lutheran Disaster Response
Whether people are experiencing a natural disaster requiring immediate response or the changing rural conditions affecting many South Dakotans, LSS is available to assist individuals, families, congregations and communities through their difficult times.
Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota networks closely with Lutheran Disaster Response and state, local and other faith-based disaster relief programs when disaster occurs in South Dakota.
Examples of situations where LSS has been involved include storm and tornado, flooding, forest fires and drought. There are LSS staff throughout the state that have training and experience in Critical Incident Stress Management.
