In the summer of 2008, Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio (LSS) launched a social enterprise initiative. In its simplest form, a social enterprise is a business that is created to support or enhance an organization’s mission.
As an extension of our mission of “creating a better world by serving those in need,” we intend to create meaningful work experiences for residents of our homeless shelters. Our vision is to build an employment model that equips shelter residents with the necessary skill sets to live a more independent and satisfying life.
Fairhaven Lawn Care, our first social enterprise venture, is based out of the LSS of Southern Ohio office and employs clients of our Fairfield County Emergency Shelter and Fairhaven Place supportive housing program. Fairhaven Lawn Care provides a full spectrum of commercial lawn care services throughout southern and central Ohio.
Patriot Pride Painting Company is LSS’ third social enterprise venture, and it too is based out of our LSS of Southern Ohio office, employing area military veterans in need of employment. All members of our team have been professionally trained by members of the Lancaster Sherwin-Williams and can handle most residential and commercial projects.
