Over 70 years, Lutheran Social Services, at our Long Beach, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Offices, has reached out to those on the margins of society: men, women, and children with no home in which to live, no food to eat, no clean clothes to wear, no work to earn a living, and no reason to think today will be any different from yesterday, with the same forecast in store for tomorrow, and the day after that.
At the Avanti Office in San Gabriel Valley, LSS have been serving adults with developmental and or intellectual disabilities for over 40 years. The LSS – Avanti Office is located in Pasadena and offers Community Integration Training (CIT) to participants. The CIT Program helps our participants engage in various community-based activities of their choice, learn safety skills, gain supported employment, learn vocational, volunteer, social, and communication skills to enjoy meaningful lives. The Avanti Office also provides Transportation Services for Avanti participants to engage in the community.
