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.

Make a difference by sharing your talents or knowledge

Volunteers give administrative support, provide entertainment, and keep our communities beautiful.

The LSS staff is eager to welcome any volunteers who have musical talents or knowledge to share with our residents.  Many volunteers also help with mailings, filing, making copies, or other administrative tasks. We also welcome volunteers at many of our locations to assist with special beautification projects.

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.

Unique opportunities that make a difference

Volunteers are needed in every aspect of our organization to help impact seniors in our care.

LSS wants to better the lives of seniors, no matter where they live! Through our hospice program seniors are positively impacted by volunteers. Volunteers are also needed to help us operate a resale shop that raises funds for seniors in our communities who have outlived their resources. Discover other ways to give back.
