The LCMS National Housing Support Corporation’s vision is that neighborhoods close to our altars are restored and revitalized by our members’ faith active in love. The LCMS National Housing Support Corporation provides financial support to housing and neighborhood revitalization projects and partnerships. Most importantly, they lend expertise to LCMS entities who have a desire to be catalysts for change by renewing neighborhoods and bringing hope to communities others have given up on. This work is different than other housing efforts. The LCMS National Housing Support Corporation is based on changing residents lives by sharing the love of Christ and connecting communities to our churches. Through the LCMS National Housing Support Corporation, our love in action reaches out to those living in struggling circumstances and without safe, secure homes. So many opportunities exist for the LCMS National Housing Support Corporation. So many children are going to bed tonight not sure where they will be sleeping tomorrow night. For me that is intolerable. Many communities around the country need our help to make things right in their neighborhoods so that families and children can thrive and grow in a safe, secure environment.
