2020 Annual Report

​2020 Annual Report

Serving 1 in 65 Minnesotans across all 87 counties

2020 was a year of great challenge and, importantly, great opportunity. LSS remained strong through the pandemic – prioritizing the safety of employees, volunteers and the individuals we serve and support; the continued delivery of essential services; and the ongoing well-being of the organization in both the short and the long term. Safety protocols were put into place while services continued, through virtual methods when possible. In fact, many LSS services grew as our teams stepped up to help Minnesotans through the pandemic.

This year, we also deepened our commitment to social justice, following the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent unrest. While we are proud of the anti-racism work we have done since 2008 when LSS took its stand to be an anti-racism organization, we are still on a journey. We recognize the need to do more, and to be more, for all Minnesotans.

We have experienced an outpouring of generosity from our friends and supporters who stepped up to support LSS with financial gifts and the gift of their time as volunteers, even as they faced uncertainty in their own lives. Thank you for your friendship with LSS, and your generosity.
