Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization also known as Luminaria Home Care. This nonprofit organization has been serving Santa Cruz County for over 12 years. Their mission is to demonstrate kindness, do justice and serve those in need. Luminaria Home Care provides an array of quality care services to seniors and individuals with disabilities, so they are able to live at home and maintain their highest level of independence.
The services provided by Luminaria Home Care are focused on helping individuals gain their independence through in-home services, which include personal care, housekeeping and organization, transportation and errands, grocery shopping and meal preparation, habilitation and skill development, companionship and respite care for family members. They also offer training and support for family caregivers of seniors and individuals with disabilities.
“We have a great staff here at Luminaria Home Care. We have staff who is dedicated to serving those in need. Everything they do for their clients comes from the heart,” said Linda Manjarrez Regional Director for Southern Arizona.
These services are funded through ALTCS, Pima Council on Aging, DCS, and DDD. Luminaria Home Care like many other nonprofit organizations is dedicated to the communities they serve. Therefore, continued support from the community can help organizations like these continue to serve those vulnerable populations through donations of adult diapers, bottled water, blankets or monetary support.
