Be a part of something bigger

Being a part of the LSS Network of Hope means more than simply having a job – it means being a part of something bigger. In 2016, LSS provided more than 120,000 nights of shelter, 2,380,000 meals and 133,600 days of care to people in need. This doesn’t measure the hope or encouragement our clients receive when interacting with staff members of the LSS family.

Each and every day, the employees of LSS are working to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. To us, each life matters, and we all work together to make sure our impact on every individual and the community is positive.

Creating a Better World

We asked our employees “What calls you to create a better world by serving people in need at LSS?”

Here’s what some said..

“I enjoy the opportunity to help others with their struggles — large and small. There is no better pay than the “thank you’s” I receive.”

Bill Blaney, Service Coordinator, LSS Affordable Housing

“My overwhelming desire to be the change I want to see in the world today. If I am able to help or enhance one person’s life, I have achieved greatness.”

Jamie Jones, Shelter Advocate, LSS CHOICES for Victims of Domestic Violence

“From a young age, I have been taught to leave a place better than I found it. Serving at LSS is a great way to better the community I live in by serving my neighbors.”

Casey McElroy, Pantry Manager, LSS Food Pantries

“I love knowing that I will meet someone new each day. At the end of the day, if I feel that I provided a needed service, a listening ear and made someone’s day a little brighter, I leave fulfilled and smiling as well.”

– Amy Russell, Health Center Manager, LSS Faith Mission
