Mission Statement

The St. Luke Foundation helps to ensure that the ministry of St. Luke Lutheran Community, on behalf of the aging, will continue for as long as there is a need for such care. St. Luke Lutheran Community's mission is to provide faith-based services to enrich the lives of older adults.

Description

St. Luke Lutheran Home was founded in 1954 by the Lutheran Women's League of Stark and adjacent counties. This group of energetic and nurturing women from area Lutheran churches recognized a need to care for seniors who could no longer completely manage on their own.

The St. Luke Foundation was established in 1983 to provide financial support for the benefit of St. Luke Lutheran Community and its residents. The Foundation is a separate, not-for-profit, charitable corporation having its own board of trustees.

St. Luke Lutheran Community now has four facilities: North Canton, Portage Lakes, Minerva, & The Waterford. It is affiliated with the Evangelical
Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), recognized by the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) and acknowledged as an outreach ministry of both.
