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.
Lighten the load of someone this Christmas...
This year we hope to provide over 800 Christmas hampers to relieve the burdens that so many families face at this special time of year.
The planning and work are well underway but with your help we can ensure that those who come to us do not have to choose between providing a special meal for their family on Christmas or paying their bills. If you have not already done so, could you help by making a donation to support families who do face this choice each year?
A donation of $50 can supply a hamper to a person on their own or a small family while $100 can supply a hamper to a larger family. Your donation will also ensure that we can stock up for the increase of people who will access our services in the coming months.

Your generous support allows us to demonstrate the kind of love God offers each of us…
Each Christmas 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 Christmas Hampers in the Metropolitan and Barossa District.
