Where the Care of the Soul is the Soul of Care

Our vision is to share eternal hope, provide hope, and inspire hope. 

Our executive leadership team, Board of Directors and the Foundation’s Board of Trustees guide our organization to provide Christian care throughout our services and programs. Caregivers are dedicated to the Christian mission of our organization.

Our history goes back to one family’s loss during the Civil War, which led to the creation of a home for the aged and the orphans in 1898. It’s a story of love, dedication and hope.

Our ministry offers community and congregational services. Each location offers a variety of health care and housing services, and we assist churches in developing outreach ministries.

The purpose of The Lutheran Home Association is in keeping with the words of the Lord Jesus (Matthew 25:34-36, 40): “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. … I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”
