LSS helps individuals rebuild their lives after experiencing homelessness. Our supportive services offer individuals and families the opportunity to stabilize their lives and become self-sufficient. Our vision is that we will end homelessness and help create communities that have hope, stability, and a path to self-sufficiency.
Using stable housing as our blueprint for success, we provide the men, women, and children whom we serve with a safe place to call home and the compassionate guidance they need to address the reasons for their past homelessness. LSS believes that when housing needs are met, all members of our community can become engaged, contributing members of society.
LSS currently serves nearly 3600 clients in Sacramento, San Francisco, Contra Costa and San Joaquin Counties. Our programs include money management services, case management in transitional and permanent supportive housing sites, case management and housing services for emancipated former foster care youth, disaster preparedness training, and long-term disaster response services in the event of a local disaster.
As a public benefit corporation and a 501(c) 3, LSS is funded by individual and corporate donations, government contracts, grants, and by the support of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, and their member congregations. LSS also works as the lead affiliate for Northern California for Lutheran Disaster Response.
