March is National Social Work Month
We have many social work professionals here at LSSM and we are grateful for each and every one of them. Social workers—more than any other profession—recognize that more must be done to address persistent social problems such as poverty, lack of education and health care access, and discrimination based on gender, race, sexuality, or income. And they know that all people, no matter their circumstance, at some time in their lives may need the expertise of a skilled social worker.
Thank you to our social workers, you make a difference every day.

We all need a solid home base to help us grow to our full potential. If it takes a village to raise a child, it may also require a community to form a healthy family.
At Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, we seek to empower families toward strength and wholeness. Our programs guide families along the path of staying intact, and when that is not possible, we help children find safe, nurturing alternative settings where they can flourish and thrive.
LSSM Home Care solutions offer independence and a sense of connection, allowing people to remain in their natural environments for as long as possible – perhaps throughout the duration of their lives. Our Group Homes offer Persons with Disabilities independence while fostering community among residents. Outings, activities and camaraderie form the backbone of life for these communities. Our HUD Subsidized Housing provides safe, clean, affordable homes for people who need it. We are proud to offer exactly what Michigan residents need to maintain home and community at every stage of life.
LSSM serves older adults through senior living residences, rehabilitation services, assisted living facilities, memory care units, skilled nursing programs, home care and HUD subsidized housing. Connecting with our overall vision of sharing in life with all, and upholding every individual’s dignity and health, we help older adults find their place in the aging process so they can fulfill their life’s potential every single day.
