Sharing Resources · Enhancing Lives

Spring is in the air! Each day, we are blessed by the dedication of others to our ministries! Time, talents and treasures allow us to help our neighbors, friends and families find solutions to some of life’s most complex problems. Because needs are climbing, and we have proven that together we can accomplish more, Filling Home of Mercy, Luther Home of Mercy, and Lutheran Social Services are sharing resources under the Lutheran Ministries of Mercy umbrella. These combined efforts allow us to create stronger outcomes and to provide for those in our care. 

Joined under one partnership in ministry
  • Over 42,391 people were served by our programs and services in 2020.
