About this organization







Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains walks with the vulnerable, through services that heal, strengthen, and provide hope.


See Schedule O. Foster care services: In FY 2018, LFS served 296 children and youth in licensed foster homes located across the Front Range and Eastern Plains of Colorado. LFS accepts referrals from any of the 64 counties in Colorado who retain custody of the children, as well as placement of unaccompanied refugee minors (URM) who are referred through the US State Department, Office of Refugee Resettlement. LFS cared for URM children and youth separated from their families due to war or civil unrest during the year. LFS foster care services provide high quality case management for all children in care, as well as enhanced support for foster families who care for these vulnerable children and youth. LFS focuses on providing the services and supports needed to keep children and families stable, reducing the number of disruptions children and youth experience during their time in foster care. In addition, LFS facilitates 39 adoptions from foster care annually.
