Food & Shelter Assistant – Lutheran Community Services, Inc.
Position: Food & Shelter Assistant – Lutheran Community Services, Inc.
Organization Description: Sharing God's Blessings by Helping Others in Need is Lutheran Community Services' mission. LCS is a Delaware based organization, founded by the coming together of local Lutheran congregations for the purpose of better serving the needs of our community. Members of these churches recognized more than five decades ago that much more could be accomplished by coming together in service than by each congregation doing its own thing. Today an important part of Lutheran Community Services' income still comes from contributions by these local churches, and volunteers from these churches also heavily support the agency. Lutheran Community Services is a member of Lutheran Services in America, the Delaware Housing Coalition, the Food Bank of Delaware, Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and the United Way of Delaware.
On a daily basis the Lutheran Volunteer works directly with clients to ensure their needs for emergency food or financial assistance related to housing are met. The person in this position will have the opportunity to meet with people from very diverse backgrounds who all have one thing in common: the need for basic necessities such as food and housing.
