Our community is part of the Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey.
Since 2016, The Villa at Florham Park has been part of Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (LSMNJ), a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization committed to serving people of all ages, faiths and backgrounds. The Villa is governed by LSMNJ’s Board of Trustees, which includes representatives from the business community, churches and other professional and civic groups. Board members regularly provide direction on strategic plans, operational reports, budgets and financial statements with the aim of supporting LSMNJ’s mission:
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, and in response to God’s love as revealed in the Gospel, the mission of Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey is to serve those in New Jersey who hurt, who are in need, or who have limited choices.
Giving and receiving help.
Residents of The Villa are considered part of the statewide LSMNJ family, which means that each resident has the opportunity to help and be helped by LSMNJ. While net earnings from The Villa are reinvested into the community’s facilities and operations, some funds may also be used to support LSMNJ’s social services. Through these programs, residents help those who are hungry or needing a place to call home. On the other hand, through grant funding along with donations from partner groups, churches and the community, LSMNJ helps support facility enhancements at The Villa and provides occasional assistance for those residents with diminished resources.
