Liechtenstein Homeland Service (German: Liechtensteiner Heimatdienst, LHD) was a political party in Liechtenstein that advocated corporate statism and the abolition of party politics.[1]

Established in the autumn of 1933, the party's positions began to radicalize and move toward National Socialist ideas within a few months of existence.[1] By December 1933, this radicalization caused some members (such as co-founder Eugen Schafhauser) to abandon the party.[2]

LHD merged with the Christian-Social People's Party (VP) in 1936 to form the Patriotic Union (VU).[3]
