About LSS of Minnesota
Since 1865, Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota has responded to Minnesota's changing needs by being wholly committed to making life better for our most vulnerable citizens.
Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota traces its history to 1865 when Vasa Lutheran Church opened its church to care for four children in need. Pastor Norelius came up with a community response that inspired hope and changed the life of the community.
Changing lives for 145 years
145 years ago, Eric Norelius took powerful action that has lived
on in the actions of thousands of others ever since.
It all started with children
Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota traces its history to 1865 when Vasa Lutheran Church near Red Wing opened its church to care for four children in need.
These children, new immigrants from Sweden, were the four surviving children of Mikola Erikson and his wife. Suddenly, they found themselves without home or family.
Pastor Norelius brought the children to Vasa and arranged care for them in a refurbished church basement. This later became Vasa Children’s Home, Minnesota’s first and oldest orphanage.
Pastor Norelius saw children in need and came up with a community response that inspired hope and changed their lives and the life of the community.
Today, the LSS tradition of service continues.
Today, Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota holds these values at the core of its vision and mission. These values guide the efforts of LSS and empowers us to overcome any challenge and, in doing so, achieve results that endure.
Through the years, Minnesotans have continued to advocate for our most vulnerable citizens - children, people with disabilities, and the elderly - to ensure they have the opportunity to live and work in community with safety, dignity and hope.
