Lutheran Social Services is pleased to present our new website. While you will find many of the same features and general content as you did in our old site, we have changed a few things so you can find information faster and easier. In addition, this new site has been optimized for mobile devices, including tablets/iPads and smart phones. We hope you find the site pleasing to the eye and easier to navigate regardless of what type of device you use to learn more about the programs and services offered by Lutheran Social Services.
Community. Wikipedia defines community as a social unit of any size that shares common values. In that definition, the word unit is an awfully sterile word to describe a place where common values are shared. I prefer to describe community with these three words – South Central Pennsylvania.
Last fall, LSS asked for your support in helping us to expand our services. We asked in a big way. Since we had not conducted a Capital Campaign in more than two decades, a part of me felt we were taking a huge risk in asking for the community’s support to raise $4.5 million. But, there was also a part of me that knew that the caring fiber that is wound into the very fabric of our community would not let us down. As I have witnessed many times throughout that past 20 years, when the communities that comprise South Central Pennsylvania are called to action, they respond. You not only responded, you responded generously and turned a risk into an opportunity to care for those who have cared for us.
