Lutheran Social Ministry financial assistance.

Lutheran Social Ministry is a leading charity organization that operates nationwide. They help millions of less fortunate individuals every year and provide services regardless of religion, race, or age. The exact types and availability of social services and assistance programs vary widely between each site as do funding levels. However the Lutheran Ministry is focused on advocating on behalf of low income families, seniors, the disabled and others.

Hundreds of locations are scattered across the country. They rely on tens of thousands of full time staff, social workers and volunteers in order to assist the less fortunate. Centers and charities are located in cities, urban neighborhoods, and also rural communities.

While assistance is available for the less fortunate, there are some groups or people that are more of a focus. This includes senior citizens, the disabled, homeless, immigrants, and low income families with children. The various centers, or missions, are also involved mobilizing other non-profits and charities in order to combine resources. Each Lutheran social ministry charity organization is committed to helping in any way they can, even if that just involved providing a referral or information.

In cities, small towns, and suburbs across the country people of religions and backgrounds work together to ensure housing and other services are offered for individuals with disabilities. The Lutheran social ministry organizations partner together to provide healthcare, food, transportation and chore services for the elderly and senior citizens. The groups advocate for the poor and less fortunate.

The volunteers and employees in these various organizations can provide services. They will treat acute and chronic illnesses of mind and body, provide care for the whole person in need, and empower families and individuals to care for themselves and their communities.

The assistance provided by each organization varies based on local needs and resources. Some centers focus just on basic needs and therefore may run a food pantry, clothing closet or thrift store. Others Lutheran human service sites will meet medical needs of the uninsured and indigent, and they may run clinics. Sites may coordinate low income housing to seniors and process section 8 vouchers. Much more is offered too. While some of the centers do provide direct financial aid for emergency expenses such as paying rent or utility bills, this is not as common as some of the other aid that is offered. However each site will do its best to serve and care for people in need.

 

 

 

Some Lutheran Social Services sites are leaders in offering social service programs and programs in their communities. The long term goal is to generally alleviate poverty. A number of emergency assistance and social services can be provided by select locations. This includes clothing, financial aid, emergency housing, food, shelter, and more. Some examples of what may provided are below, however as indicated each center operates their own services.

Housing and community services include some of the following. For customers, in particular seniors or the disabled, that are facing a disconnection of their heat during the winter, heating fuel assistance may be provided. Or get information on government programs such as LIHEAP.

Other general Lutheran Ministry resources can include basic medical care, support for those batting addition, day care, and assistance for immigrants and newcomers.

Locations may operate pantries, or have information on local food banks. This can include supermarket-style, client-choice emergency food pantries or soup kitchens. Another key resource is the USDA Food Assistance Program.

Temporary financial assistance may be provided by some of the non-profit Lutheran Social Ministry’s. While more limited in nature, funds may be offered for low-income households facing an eviction or an utility disconnection. In general, money is only offered to people facing a temporary crisis that has impacted their ability to pay their bills for a month or two.

Centers may help people, especially immigrants, obtain birth certificates or state IDs. As everyone knows, these are critical in order to obtain employment or receive public assistance.

For those lower income or unemployed families facing a longer-term crisis, programs may be offered for their needs too. This includes housing, case management, job training, and more. This housing assistance is also generally focused on those facing homeless or senior citizens.

Some Lutheran charities operate transitional or maybe even permanent housing units. This can include apartment buildings for families with minor children or the elderly. The sites may allow people to live in them for many months while they work towards stability and self-sufficiency through intensive case management.

In addition to food or meals, some of the charity locations may operate holiday programs. They can provide families meals, children with toys, and seniors or the disabled with companionship in their homes. Another service is the Christmas Adopt a Family Program.

Emergency shelter and placement for homeless families may be provided. Staff can assist clients with reuniting chronically homeless individuals with families or friends. They often rely on local charities or churches for the housing units.

Partnerships and advocacy is almost always available. This is often done in partnership with other groups such as Catholic Charities or Aging on Agency and disabled offices. Lutheran Social Services knows that combining and coordinating resources can assist even more people in their community.

Immigrant, refugee and related services are offered to newcomers. Some examples of the assistance includes English Access Program (REAP), Reception and Placement, and assistance with obtaining IDs (such as a drivers license) and employment.

Disability Services are available at many Lutheran sites. This can assist both the individual with the disability and their caregiver. Examples can include Adult Day Health Care, Mental Health Services, and information or access to affordable housing. This is an options for persons with disabilities, Hearing Impaired & Deaf Persons, and others.

Some of the self-sufficiency services include employment counseling, credit counseling, and budgeting. The staff know that gaining long term stability and/or employment is key to overcoming poverty.
