When you volunteer at Lutheran Life Villages— Northeast Indiana’s premier senior living and care provider — you’ll have the opportunity to get to know our residents and staff, share a few laughs, and develop lasting personal relationships. Plus, you’ll be enriching every life you touch as well as your own. Your volunteerism also helps support our mission and provides a “Better Way of Living” for the residents in our communities in Fort Wayne, Kendallville, and Pine Valley.
Service is an integral part of the Christian faith. It not only allows us to express our faith, but also sets a good example for our children and grandchildren. Giving back teaches us some valuable life lessons that can only be learned by serving.

Whether it’s joining our residents on an outing to the Historic Embassy Theatre, serving a customer in one of our gift shops, or helping with our mailings of the Volunteer Voice, we invite you to find a volunteer opportunity that’s right for you.
