Knowledge is a Key to Freedom

Sheyla Rodriguez will enter Yale University this fall. She has a bright future, but it took a long journey for her to arrive at this point. She and her family left Cuba when she was eleven and within days stood at the border between Mexico and the United States. They left a repressive dictatorship to live in a nation where freedom and opportunity are available to all people.

LSSSC To Develop Community Wellness Campus

A leading provider of social services programs in Southern California, LSSSC has announced it is creating a Community Wellness Campus in San Bernardino. This innovative campus will use a holistic model to provide housing and sustainability services to the communities in the region.

Peer Support Specialist Training

LSSSC is engaged in a very important project – the training and support of individuals who wish to become Peer Support Specialists (PSS). This project is being funded by a grant from the California Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAi) administrating the Workforce Education and Training (WET) Grant Program, a component of the State’s MHSA.

Noisy Offering Ministry

Noisy Offering is, as its name indicates, noisy. On the Second Sunday of each month, we ask members to join us in bringing spare change, as a symbol of the change we hope to make in our communities. When your quarters, pennies, nickels and dimes drop, it is a tangible reminder of the noisy disruption we are called to make through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
