We are Mission Driven people bringing healing, hope and help to those we serve.


It’s the kind of work that can only be done together.

At Lutheran Services Florida, we are connected to both the community we work with and the communities we serve… because often, they are one in the same. If you’ve been looking for a team where you are a part of something greater than yourself, consider joining LSF today.


Because of the number of programs we offer across the state, you’ll have the chance to explore areas that interest you—and then you’ll get the mentoring and support you need to grow once you’re there. For those looking for more than just a “job”, Lutheran Services Florida just might be the perfect place to begin.


Everything we do is rooted in purpose. It is important to us that what we do counts toward a greater good, so our mission to build vibrant communities through stronger families is what drives us forward.


Mission: To bring god’s healing, hope and help to others in the name of Jesus Christ. Our vision is why we do it:


Our employees share common competencies: They are adaptable, strong decision makers, use good judgement, effectively communicate, have leadership skills, plan and organize their work.

If this sounds like you then join our team of like-minded, mission driven employees today!

LSF continues to create innovative programs that look to address key needs in the community.

It’s so much more than a buzzword.

At LSF, our focus is “all people”, because we must reflect the people we serve. Those who work for Lutheran Services Florida know that they are valued and their ideas matter, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, background, or beliefs. This, for us, is non-negotiable, so we are constantly doing the work required to create a truly diverse and inclusive culture.

Because no matter who you are, if you work for LSF, our goal is for you to feel right at home.



Our employees are our partners, so we work to maintain open, two-way conversation at all times. If our recent engagement scores are any indicator, we’re doing a pretty good job of not only letting our teams know their voices matter, but of acting on their suggestions, ideas, and concerns. We’re proud of that relationship.

When I see the kids coming, many of them with sad faces, only God knows what they have been through, and then after few days you see them smiling, making new friends, feeling free and safe in the shelter, and I feel so proud and satisfied for working here.
