Thank you!


A special thank you to St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in West Hempstead, NY for their loving support of new mothers! Their Women’s Ministry held a Baby Shower to benefit LSSNY’s New LIFE Center’s Layette Program. Because of their amazing fellowship and generosity, new mothers served by the food pantry in Uniondale, LI will receive beautiful new clothes, books and other items for their newborn babies.



On February 12th, 2018, the Rev. Samuel Silaban was installed as a Chaplain at Lutheran Social Services of New York’s Muhlenberg and Bergen Street Residences. Chaplain Silaban will provide spiritual care to residents and staff, using an inter-faith model of care, and working within the residents’ belief and value systems. The Muhlenberg and Bergen Street Residences are two of the five residences run by LSSNY that serve over 500 individuals each day.
