Expressions of Abundance

Three diverse families each find an opportunity to rebuild their lives through one organization’s impact. Produced for Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area.

The Need

The services provided by Lutheran Social Services of the North Capital Area range from refugee & immigrant services to adoption & foster care and adapt based on the needs of the community. To share the impact of their work with an audience of donors, LSS needed to communicate what they do– and why it matters. They needed to visually demonstrate how the work of LSS NCA supports families and communities in a way that would both encourage donors to contribute to the organization and be respectful of the sensitive stories of their clients.
