Lutheran Ministries of Mercy

Together, Toward Tomorrow!

“Lutheran Ministries of Mercy works with affiliates and business partners in a coordinating effort to maximize resources and expertise with the goal of increased sustainability and innovation in service delivery.”

---Terri Rodriguez, LMM President & CEO

“A small act of kindness…something ordinary and common…something that might have happened just once will make such a difference. Today, and in the Gospel, good neighbors emulate this kindness. We may forget when we do these things, but the Lord has never forgotten. Every act of kindness, no matter how big or small is important.” 

---Pastor Don Wukotich, President Emeritus

“You had me at ‘…each day we are helping our neighbors, friends and families find solutions to some of life’s most complex problems’ because I truly believe that is what you are doing.” Accept this gift as my thanks for all that you do, and will do to make a difference.”

---2020 Together Toward Tomorrow Donor

Lutheran Ministries of Mercy

Each day we are helping our neighbors, friends and families find solutions to some of life’s most complex problems. Filing Homes, Luther Home of Mercy, and Lutheran Social Services are sharing resources under the Lutheran Ministries of Mercy umbrella. Our combined efforts allow us to create stronger outcomes for those in our care. 

While things are changing every day due to Covid-19, we continue to hold true to our mission—to love and serve others. We will also strive to keep our clients, their families and our staff as safe as possible! 

We are proud of our collective work, and will continue to stretch every resource beyond what we could ever imagine. While some of our buildings have to be closed, we are using technology, face-time and other tools to provide some very important programming in this new way.
