Because of You 2019-2020

Because of your generosity, LSS can continue to promote the stability and honor the dignity of the individuals and families we serve by providing supportive housing services that lead to self-sufficiency. You help make it possible for individuals of all ages to rebuild their lives after experiencing homelessness, and we appreciated your support in 2019-20.
