Changing the lives of children and youth since 1868
The Diakon Lutheran Fund today helps to make possible the types of services it once provided.
That’s because Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries operated the Tressler Orphans Home from 1868 through 1962 and then continued to provide and, eventually, fund programs for children, youth, and families in the community. That over 150-year history of service has touched and changed the lives of thousands of children and youth—a tradition of care that continues today.
Diakon is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, all gifts to Diakon are tax deductible. Thanks for making a difference!
