A Giving Tradition for 160 Years

Lutheran Senior Services was built by generous hearts who gave of their time, their talents, and their financial resources. Throughout our 160-year history, countless individuals have been our partners in serving the needs of seniors in Missouri and Illinois.

With every donation, you’re providing a gift that will bring comfort and hope to seniors in need during a vulnerable time in their lives. Invest in tomorrow by making a gift today.
