Lakeview Employment Group (LEG) 

Lakeview Employment Group (LEG) is a non-profit organization that provides employment support for people facing extra challenges such as homelessness, chronic unemployment, criminal backgrounds, or youth (18-24).

Pride Parade ​

Members of LakeView Lutheran, as part of the Coalition of Welcoming Churches, march in the Chicago Pride Parade every June.

Hundreds of migrants from Central and South America are being brought to Chicago and lack access to basic needs. They are being placed in the local police stations while they are waiting for room to open up at the shelters. The 19th District Police Station has been hosting migrants since April 2023.  Volunteers from across the area are partnering with LVLC to fulfill basic needs the migrants have and support them until they move to city-run shelters. Please use the link and/or QR code to the left to learn more and lend a helping hand!

Along with our Lakeview Lutheran Parish partners we serve a hot meal once a month our neighbors living in tent encampments along our city expressways.

Rooftop Garden​

​In the summer months, LakeView Lutheran has a rooftop garden which provides fresh vegetables to two local shelters.  In 2017, 141 pounds of vegetables were delivered to the shelters.
