Since 1917, Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area has boldly served, confident in the knowledge that every small gesture is a miracle.
We offer love to those in need, creating new families in the process. We engage our communities to welcome the displaced. We embrace those whose present circumstances make them feel unwanted and marginalized by society, strengthening their lives and providing hope for the future.
As we embark on another century of service, join us as we collaborate and connect individuals, groups and congregations united in the mission to serve. Together we are stronger and capable of making the impossible, possible.
