In 2023, Filling Homes, Luther Home of Mercy and Lutheran Social Services of Northwestern Ohio, working together, impacted more than 31,800 people, serving children, adults, and families across Northwestern Ohio and Southeastern Michigan.
Dedicated individuals — 758 staff members and 575 volunteers, supported by donors like you — enable us to fulfill our mission and care for one another. Those we serve are then empowered to pass it on, just as they are, right where they are.
We invite you to join our 2024 Together Toward Tomorrow campaign. With your continued support, we will do more together than any of us could individually.
