Fun, friends, and community. They are the things I experience most at the Settlement House. All those things are love.
They gave me time to heal, to feel love again, to concentrate on my children. I had the chance to grow.
What LSH did during the pandemic was life saving to all of us.
I’m safe. I’m living on my own. I’m not fearing for my life.
I graduated college because I had support there and people believed in me.
My time at LSH helped me realize my worth and that no one has the right to take away your hope.
A lot of good things happened after I came to Lutheran Settlement House.
I see Lutheran Settlement House as a friend. They’ve taken me into their arms, and I love it. I really do.
Coming to Lutheran Settlement House was the beginning of me taking my power back.
If LSH didn’t come into my life at the time that they did, I don’t think I’d be alive today.
