Cause of the Month
"In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
At American Lutheran Church, we believe in being active members of our Community. All year long we support a cause of the Month and give our love, service and generosity to help make a difference in the lives of everyone in our Community.

Lincoln, NE 68508
The Cause of the Month for February is Community Action. Materials they publish indicate in the last ten years, the population of the city of Lincoln alone has grown by more than 50 thousand people. In that same amount of time, the number of people living in poverty has grown by 45%. Poverty diminishes human potential. It takes away opportunities. And it prevents people from living their best lives.
How can you help?
At Community Action, we fight the causes and conditions of poverty to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Our 17 programs provide distinct services in four impact areas: Early Childhood Education, Homelessness Prevention, Financial and Family Well-Being, and Hunger Relief and Healthy Food Access. Our strengths-based approach to case management, which utilizes Motivational Interviewing™, guides our work to empower people living in poverty to reach economic stability.
