Volunteer Lutheran Senior Services

Making a difference together

As a not-for-profit organization, Lutheran Senior Services would not be able to live out our mission of Older Adults Living Life to the Fullest (based on John 10:10) without our valuable volunteers. Nearly 8,000 volunteers serve in a variety of ways on an annual basis. Approximately 80,000 hours, which equates to an estimated $2,087,000, are donated in service by our volunteers annually.

Beyond the numbers, we are a dedicated and collaborative team committed to cultivating generous hearts. We pledge to engage volunteers in meaningful contributions toward our mission while creating joy in those who give and serve.

Become part of our volunteer team today and discover your opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our seniors.

Make a difference by serving seniors

Volunteers may assist with a variety of meaningful activities or simply provide companionship.

Residents at LSS communities have the opportunity to participate in meaningful activities to enrich their lives. Volunteers are often needed to execute these activities. Examples include games, field trips, crafts, or transporting residents in wheelchairs to destinations around the community. Many volunteers provide companionship to our residents.

Limited on time? You can still make a difference!

Individual and group volunteers are needed for short-term projects that make a big impact.

LSS hosts many events and fundraisers throughout the year. We couldn’t do this without the help of our volunteers. Need something you can do from home? We offer service-to-go projects and Adopt-a-Senior project ideas that can help seniors in need.
