Welcome to Lutheran Social Services of Northern California
With our origins in social ministry efforts dating back to 1883, Lutheran Social Services responds when people are vulnerable because of homelessness, mental illness, drug addiction or disaster. We provide support services and compassionate guidance to help individuals, families, and youth emerging from foster care stabilize their lives and become self-sufficient. Our programs serve more than 2,575 clients in Sacramento, San Francisco, and Contra Costa and San Joaquin Counties, providing hope, housing, and compassionate support.
We are grateful to our many funding partners in the community, ranging from government agencies, to Lutheran congregations, to our philanthropic supporters.
