In October 2019, we came together with staff, volunteers, donors and other Friends of Foss to celebrate 90 years of the Foss Legacy. Guests were treated to a motivating presentation by Erik Lindbergh, a delicious dinner and a room of historical displays. Please take a moment and share the Foss legacy.
Foss was built upon the compassionate spirit of Dr. L. C. Foss and the Lutheran Welfare Society during the Great Depression. Dr. Foss was a remarkable pioneer and Lutheran pastor who provided inspirational leadership and life-time service to others. Our organization continues to embrace this same life-giving spirit in our commitment to meeting the changing needs of older adults.
