About the Organization
LSS of Northern California supports dignity and stability for our community’s most vulnerable by providing supportive housing services that lead to self-sufficiency. LSS’ service area is Northern California and we maintain offices and programs in Concord, Sacramento, San Francisco and Stockton.
Founded in 1883, LSS incorporated as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit in 1968. In the early 1990’s LSS created a money management support system for those affected by HIV/AIDS in San Francisco, and developed the first transitional housing program for Sacramento families in 1992. Since that time LSS has expanded and now has considerable experience and expertise working with hard-to-serve populations.
LSS touches over 3,000 lives every day providing non-sectarian services to the chronically homeless, the disabled, low-income families, people with AIDS, the elderly, former foster youth and other at-risk populations. Our programs provide transitional and supportive housing, money management and other supportive services. Our competent and caring staff helps individuals and families to stabilize their lives, acquire skills and reach self-sufficiency. Many are suffering from mental or physical disabilities, chronic illnesses and substance abuse issues.
