Partnerships

Combining resources for greater impact

NLCS is proud to provide a ministry of service to older adults alongside many church and community partners. It is through such partnerships that our organization can truly fulfill its mission and reach out to the greater community.

Some of our partners:

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), and the local Synods:

  • Delaware-Maryland
  • Virginia
  • Metropolitan D.C.

From these Synods, we draw leadership on our Board of Trustees, as well as financial support for our ministries. We offer these Synods our support to the congregations within the Synods on a variety of older adult care topics, sharing the expertise gained through more than 130 years of experience.
