At 20 locations across our state, Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey annually makes a difference in the lives of more than 6,000 individuals. We offer diverse programs and services that target and address specific human care and housing needs.
Within the Burlington County region, we have numerous opportunities to serve seniors, immigrants, the hungry and the homeless. Volunteers are encouraged and welcomed at the many programs and locations providing services to those who are hurt, in need or have limited choices.
Gather your church group, your co-workers, or your friends and family and help make someone’s life a little bit better.  Remember, to the world you are only one person, but to one person you may be the world.
We have listed only some of the opportunities that are consistently needed at the locations in the Burlington County region.
