Mission Statement

LSS mission is to provide service that inspires hope, changes lives, and builds community. Our vision is that all people will live and work in community with dignity, safety, and hope. The services of LSS are designed to help people make significant, long-term changes in their lives.

Description

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota (LSS) traces its roots to 1865, when a small congregation took in orphaned children who needed care and protection. LSS was incorporated as an agency on September 25, 1962, and is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. As one of the largest nonprofit providers of social services in Minnesota, LSS impacts the lives of 100,000 individuals annually through the dedication of 2,300 employees and 8,100 volunteers who work in 300 communities across the state. We are widely respected for the quality and administration of our services and have one or more services in all of Minnesota’s 87 counties. Our services reflect compassion, integrity, and respect for all individuals and cultures regardless of race, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, or religion. LSS is accredited through the National Council on Accreditation and meets or exceeds state requirements for professional licensure and delivery of services.
