We offer a variety of housing options and solutions, including subsidized, market rate, and affordable housing. In addition, we offer programs for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. 

Eviction Prevention 

Sept. 10, 2020 Update:

There is some confusion around the new eviction moratorium that went into effect on 9/4/20.  Below is the information provided by the CDC. This includes the declaration that will prevent you from being evicted during this time.  Please make sure that you read the declaration, sign and provide to your landlord. We are still working to find out how/when/if we can facilitate rental assistance. 

Lutheran Social Services is committed to partnering with our funders, city/counties and you while helping you through this process. Please continue to check back here for updates.
