Welcome to LUK in Massachusetts!


LUK is a not-for-profit social service agency located in Central Massachusetts dedicated to improving the lives of youth and their families. The organization offers a full spectrum of programs addressing mental health, trauma, addiction and substance abuse prevention, homelessness, and more.

LUK was established on the belief that all people have inherent worth and every community should be empowered to make changes to ensure the well-being of its members.  Its services are “strength-based,” which means that each person or family receives individualized care, sets their own goals with the support of LUK staff, and has a voice throughout their care.  It’s no wonder LUK has a long-standing reputation of being person-centered, with qualified, caring, and compassionate professionals working with community members “where they are at.”

Each year LUK delivers crisis care, social services, and behavioral health care to over 3,000 children and adults: keeping children safe through foster and residential care, strengthening families through counseling and mentorship, and offering youth a pathway to a healthy future through life skills training. LUK also reaches over 100,000 community members through positive youth development activities, community organizing around youth substance abuse prevention, responses to trauma, street outreach, and more.

And Now, AmeriCorps National Service!
In summer 2024, LUK will be launching its first AmeriCorps program, a new effort to provide even more meaningful services to the communities the organization serves.  We’re so honored that the organization has selected the Impact Suite as its one-stop-shop data system for handling AmeriCorps member enrollment, member file management, timesheets, and compliance testing.
