Your Gift Makes a Dramatic Change in the Lives of Children, Families & Older Adults
Each year, Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries provides direct service to nearly 70,000 children, youths, families, and older adults. In addition, products distributed through Diakon Kathryn’s Kloset annually touch the lives of several hundred thousand people regionally, nationally, and internationally. Your charitable donations help Diakon to change the lives of even more people.
Diakon provides more than $1 million a month in benevolent care. That’s because our services are frequently not covered or not covered fully by reimbursement or other government funds or by private insurance. Our “Benevolent Care Promise” means we continue to serve people even after they have legitimately exhausted their financial resources. To learn more about how benevolent care is provided locally, see the Make a Gift pages on each Diakon senior living community website; click here for a chart depicting benevolent care and contribution use within our child and family services in 2014.
Since 1868, we have depended on the generosity of donors who understand the importance of our mission and value their partnership with us in touching the lives of so many people in need. We invite you to continue or embrace that partnership. So many people count on you.
