Lutheran Community Care provides community services on behalf of the Lutheran Church in South Australia and Northern Territory.
We support communities through responding to the needs of individuals and families, community development, learning opportunities, accommodation and support.
Much of our work aims to address poverty and injustice so that those in need are empowered to achieve their full potential.
Our services are based on respect, integrity and compassion. We work with communities to develop efficient and effective ways to respond to individuals and families in need. We embrace all people regardless of language, culture, ethnicity or religion.
Our staff and volunteers walk alongside those in need to provide, not just the necessities of food, clothing and shelter but also support and care.
Coming up from 11-17 October, we are asking our supporters to host a gold-coin event to help us raise funds for our Emergency Relief program in an effort to support those living in poverty. Register your event at antipovertyweek.org.au
Anti-Poverty Week aims to:
- Strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty and hardship around the world and in Australia; and
- Encourage research, discussion and action to address these problems, including action by individuals, communities, organisations and government.
We need your help to show God's love...
Each December our staff and volunteers work together to help people doing it tough celebrate Christmas.
This year with the help of our generous supporters we hope to provide over 800 hampers in Adelaide and the Barossa Valley.

Updated in 2010 by the South Australian Council of Churches, this handbook was developed as a Christian community response to domestic violence within the community.
It is a 'field manual' of basic information - a reminder to assist those in the church to detect and respond to domestic violence.
Lutheran Community Care is accredited at Certificate Level of the Australian Service Excellence Standards
