Giving Tuesday Campaign 2023

Lutheran Social Services of Nevada (LSSN) is a locally born, grassroots organization that emerged in the 1980’s to serve people in need in Las Vegas. LSSN is audited and has a Guidestar gold star for transparency and is known for its diverse services for individuals of many demographics, including low-income, at-risk of homelessness, homeless, families with or without children, LGBTQ+, youth, veterans, people with disabilities, and senior citizens.

The mission of LSSN is to express the Love of Christ by Serving and Caring for People in Need. Currently, LSSN serves 3500 people per month with grocery assistance, employment services, housing, ID recovery, senior services, and other programs for vulnerable people. Over the last 27 years LSSN has served over a half a million individuals.

A Season of Gratitude started at Lutheran Social Services of Nevada a little over a month ago. Since then we have been capturing gratitude nuggets or snippets of gratitude that are related to us here at LSSN or a general expression of gratitude. Stories of gratitude are coming in from our clients, volunteers, donors, friends, and partners. Here are some of the latest as of Sunday, November 26th, 2023 at 7:00pm.

  • Tiger (Community Partner from HERO School): What I am grateful for is that Lutheran Social Services has been on the front lines of getting struggling people over their hurdles since we first worked together in 1995 - and they continue to go beyond the call.
  • Jill (Holy Spirit Lutheran Church): Having the ability to assist others who have food insecurities by doing the Open Air Market.
  • Michelle: My children and I are very grateful and thankful for Lutheran social services of Nevada 🙏 for helping us to have a home and no longer being homeless. You have helped when others shut the door. You have given us support and continue to care when no one else would. We are beyond blessed to have found you in a time of great need. It's been a dark storm and you have been our umbrella. Being a single mother and victim of crime we had no family or support & you provided shelter and stability and we pray for you daily and are forever grateful God put you in our path. When I am able to give back to others you're the first place I will go. Thank you and all that support you. Sincerely Michelle and kids 🙏
