The LCMS works with 300 Recognized Service Organizations (RSOs) to extend its social ministry. These independent organizations help people while fostering the mission and ministry of the LCMS through their programs and services.
The LCMS has been involved in community revitalization and homeownership for persons of modest means for more than 30 years. Lutheran Housing Support was founded by LCMS World Relief and Human Care as the housing and community revitalization arm of our church.
Jesus wants His church to have open doors, welcoming all people to worship. But for America’s 54 million men, women and children with disabilities, those doors can lead to barriers—barriers of architecture, communication and attitude. People with disabilities long to be connected to the Body of Christ. They have gifts and talents to share.
