Helping Lubbock County families during vulnerable times
We believe we are called to help people in their times of greatest need. Upbring Neighborhood House, founded in 1967 when we were known as Lutheran Social Services of the South, is an emergency assistance program that provides families with children, people with disabilities and the elderly with food vouchers, hygiene products, prescriptions, utility assistance and other necessities.
More than 7,000 families in Lubbock County receive help from Neighborhood House each year.
