Welcome to Lutheran Homes Society

Every day, the ministries of Lutheran Homes Society (LHS) touch the lives of seniors and youth within our service area of northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. LHS provides a continuum of senior living services, youth care services, and outpatient services that focus on enhancing people’s lives. While Lutheran Homes Society’s rich heritage spans more than 150 years, our charitable ministry continues to evolve to meet current needs. Our mission, vision and values provide the framework for how we provide care and services, how we relate to staff and volunteers, and how we serve the community at large.

Lives Touched

Stories of God at work in our midst

Pete and his fatherBefore "Pete" came to LHS Family and Youth Services, he had run out of places that would accept him. He could not control his temper. He went from one residential treatment setting to another and spent several months in juvenile detention centers. LHS staff provided support and understanding to Pete, while also providing structure and guidance. Yet, he still lashed out at others. He was very aggressive and assaultive, but staff stuck with him and gained some insight into his emotional state. Staff located the biological father Pete had never met. His father was eager to meet him and get involved in his life. LHS flew the father to Ohio several times at the organization’s expense. Father and son connected at a Partners in Treatment Family Weekend, where his father stayed at a hotel, along with other parents, and met with Pete in a more structured environment. Pete’s therapist met with them individually and together, and another staff member met with the father to discuss long-term plans. Pete’s behavior began to improve. He is now forming healthy relationships with peers and staff, and is doing well in school. His relationship with his father continues to flourish through frequent phone calls and visits. Plans are being made for Pete to live with his father.

Patient undergoing physical therapy“Chuck” came to Lutheran Home at Toledo a very sick man. He suffered from a severe infection and had to be isolated in his room for a rather long period of time. Because of his illness, Chuck was not able to participate in therapy, which caused further decline in his overall health status. It was at this point that Chuck became very depressed. He told his caregivers that he was ready to give up. However, a team of compassionate staff that included nursing, therapy, social services, psychological services, and chaplaincy worked to address Chuck’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Along with tremendous support from his congregation, the staff supported Chuck through his difficult times. With praise to God for His healing touch, Chuck has had an amazing recovery. He is able to socialize out of his room and is now receiving therapy. In fact, Chuck changed from a patient who made a special effort to avoid therapy to someone who comes early to his appointments.
