Campaign for Hope

For nearly a 100 years, LSS has served in partnership with individuals, families, churches, organizations, businesses, communities and the South Dakota Synod, ELCA. And we look forward to the celebrations of life and the spirit of hope as we enter into the next century of human service.

Inspired by God's love, we believe our work today creates possibilities for those we serve.
Betty Oldenkamp, LSS President/CEO

As we move forward, the Campaign for Hope will fund much needed capital investments in Aberdeen, Rapid City and Spearfish, as well as the Campus on East Bank in Sioux Falls. The Campaign for Hope also will establish an Endowment for Sustainable Families which will ensure successful continuation of LSS Pregnancy Counseling and Adoption Services into the next century.
