Led by a volunteer Board of Directors, Lutheran Social Services of North Florida (LSSNF) strives to develop and administer programs to address unmet social service needs in north Florida. LSSNF’s current programs address the issues of affordable housing for low-income senior citizens, safely transporting children while in a vehicle, and continuing to assist low-income individuals and families to overcome the Digital Divide.
Lutheran Social Services of North Florida began as a social ministry effort of Epiphany Lutheran Church in 1988. The goal was to meet what was believed to be critical social service need in the community. LSSNF was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in August 1989 with the following mission statement: “Develop and administer programs to address unmet social service needs in north Florida.” This mission is carried out by networking with social service providers in the target area and by reviewing current needs assessments.
