Thank you for helping Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota to provide an opportunity for growth and success to so many across our state. Together we can help people be resilient to life's challenges.
Our mission began in 1920, and over the years the services we provide have changed and grown. But, the heart of Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota has not changed - we are still providing needed help to people - regardless of religion, race, or economic status. Last year we touched nearly 50,000 lives.
Please give hope by helping others - a child who has been abused and neglected, an elderly person in need of housing, a woman who needs grief counseling following the loss of her husband, a couple awaiting adoption, a child with special needs in need of a foster family, a family who is losing their home, a young couple trying to buy their first house, a single mom who can't afford afterschool and summer care for her children, a confused pregnant teen, a community recovering from flooding...and so many others who have experienced the pain of human life. Together, we see the potential for healing and wholeness.
