Lutheran Home will be known as Trinity Place

Friday, October 19, 2012 — The Boards of Lutheran Services for the Aging (LSA) and Lutheran Family Services in the Carolinas (LFS) have announced a new name for their affiliate social ministry. That name is Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC).

The introduction of the new name includes a new logo as well as new names for many of the LSC ministries.

In Albemarle, Lutheran Home-Albemarle will soon be doing business as Trinity Place.

“This new name represents nearly 90 years of combined social ministry to the people of the Carolinas,” said LSC President Ted W. Goins Jr.

“The affiliation has already reduced administrative costs and enhanced programs and opportunities for both organizations. Ultimately, it will also allow us to serve more people and to improve more lives.”

Established in 1960, Salisbury-based Lutheran Services for the Aging has served North Carolina’s older adults through its nursing homes, retirement communities, adult day services, assisted living residences and information and referral services.

In response to the growing need for at-home services, LSA has continued to develop its community geriatric care management and caregiver support programs and to pursue collaborative ventures such as PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly).  

Going forward these ministries will be referred to as LSC’s Senior Services.

Established in 1976, Lutheran Family Services in the Carolinas has served the people of North and South Carolina through foster care and adoption services, residential services for adults and youth with developmental disabilities or special needs, family and individual counseling, psychiatric services, transitional housing, veterans services and refugee resettlement. LFS has also served those in crisis as the Carolinas’ lead agency for Lutheran Disaster Response.  

Going forward, these ministries will be referred to as LSC’s Child and Family Services.

The LSC Administrative Office will continue to be based in Salisbury with additional offices in Raleigh, Charlotte and Columbia, S.C.
