LSS is part of the solution to ending homelessness in our region. Since 1992, we have focused on supportive housing, helping individuals and families of all ages to rebuild their lives after experiencing homelessness. Using stable housing as our blueprint for success, we offer compassionate, nonjudgmental guidance and connect each person to the support they need. We focus on quality of service and each person’s relevant needs, not a prescribed formula. This allows individuals and families the time to stabilize their lives and to regain their confidence and dignity.
Today nearly 4,000 individuals of all ages – birth to 102 years old – are in safe, stable housing and receiving the care and support they need through 32 supportive housing programs we manage in seven counties: Contra Costa, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Joaquin, Solano, Yolo and Shasta.
We also work in conjunction with Lutheran Disaster Response for short- and long-term response services after disasters such as the wildfires that have devastated large portions of Northern California in recent years. Our CEO and community volunteers often remain involved for years to offer guidance on rebuilding efforts.
As a public benefit 501(c) 3 nonprofit corporation (EIN 94-1659687), LSS relies on charitable donations to help advance its mission and vision. This includes gifts and grants from individuals, congregations, corporations, foundations, United Way, Combined Federal Campaign and government agencies in the form of contracts for services.
