Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest (LSS-SW)
Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest traces its history to the 1960s when Lutheran congregations gathered to consider a coordinated response to meet the needs of their most vulnerable neighbors in ways that changed lives. Today LSS-SW serves as a beacon of hope for seniors and people with disabilities that are scared of being forgotten and alone. A place where refugees are finally safe, after surviving the unimaginable. A loving home for a child who has been torn from her family. For more information on LSS-SW programs, please contact Ro Decker (520) 227-1434.
For more than thirty years, Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest (LSS-SW) has served some of the world’s most persecuted people living in the Tucson and Phoenix areas. Violence and armed conflict chase millions of people from their homes, their families, and their countries, forcing them to seek safety in other countries around the world. With volunteers and community Welcome Teams, LSS-SW builds self-reliant foundations for approximately 1,000 refugees each year. If you would like more information, or would like to volunteer, please contact Gail Hamp (520) 227-3637.
