Creating a Better World

By Serving People in Need

We’re pleased to announce HandsOn Central Ohio is now LSS 211 Central Ohio!  HandsOn joined the LSS Network of Hope on March 1 and now is fully integrated into our organization. The most important thing to know is that services aren’t changing. Anyone looking for a referral should still dial 2-1-1 as they normally would or use the food line.

LSS offers services to provide for the basic needs of all people. Through our programs, we reach 27 counties in Ohio.

Impact You Can See

Each program within the Lutheran Social Services Network of Hope is unique and diverse, serving a different function in achieving our mission of creating a better world by serving people in need. We are always striving to restore lives and communities, one person at a time. We are humbled by the number of neighbors we’ve been able to serve.
