Cup of Kindness

Through referrals from social-service agencies and Lutheran congregations, Lutheran Social Services of Indiana (LSSI) offers supportive services through case management, financial-literacy education and/or financial assistance to help families move toward financial stability. Cup of Kindness offers much more than a check. A legacy of caring since 1926, Cup of Kindness offers assistance that keeps individuals moving toward their goals. Ultimately, Cup of Kindness is a ministry that provides a connection to the hope that lies in Christ. If you would like to donate to our Cup of Kindness program, please click here.
