Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

God’s Grace In Action

At LSSSC, we strive to create and nurture a culture where celebrating diversity is a reflex, not an initiative. Our mission is to embrace, equip, and empower vulnerable people in Southern California. However, to truly see God’s Grace in Action, it is a mission that begins with a commitment to our employees. 

We Embrace everyone, just as they are, children of God. We celebrate the unique perspectives, backgrounds, identities, and talents of all. We know that God’s work happens when all voices are heard. We Equip our employees with the tools and support they need to do God’s work. We honor collaboration and advocate for equity in our policies, practices, and programs. We Empower our team to recognize challenges to our mission and join us in creating flexible, accessible, and supportive environments where all employees can contribute to success. We seek out and achieve disruptive empowerment and collectively knock down systemic barriers to workforce participation. We even the playing field.

Whether for the communities and people we serve, or for our workforce, LSSSC is actively committed to fostering a culture where Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are embraced and kept as guiding principles as we carry out God’s Grace in Action.

Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event. These are one hour awareness events only (no solicitations are made) to expose people to the great work of LSS Community Care. To become an Ambassador here are your responsibilities:
  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.
  3. 3 – Inform your invited guests of what the Fostering Community Care meeting will be about, and let them know that they will receive a follow up call from the organization
  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
