Our purpose is to help those who need us most
Throughout New Jersey, there are people who really need help and there are people who really have a need to help. We realized a long time ago that our role—and the best way to fulfill our purpose—was to help bring all these people together.
Built on more than a century of grace-filled service, Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (LSMNJ) continues its mission as a not-for-profit organization to serve residents statewide who hurt, who are in need, or who have limited choices–regardless of religious background or affiliation.
From our beginning as an orphanage in Jersey City, we have broadened our focus to serve the state’s ever-changing population. For a one page overview of our programs and services offered throughout New Jersey, check out our Reaching Out Map.
For a comprehensive look at LSMNJ and some of its programs and services, read our Annual Report to the Community. This “year in review” magazine provides an up-close look at LSMNJ’s programs, projects, and accomplishments.
