Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains is a faith based, non-profit human services agency providing adoption, foster care, older adult & caregiver, prevention, and refugee services since 1948. We provide help and support to children and families during their most challenging times regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or age. At LFS, we believe that all people, from the newborn to the most elderly, are valued members of our community.
With offices in Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Greeley, Fort Morgan and Albuquerque, we partner with communities to meet the unmet needs affecting their most vulnerable populations. LFS strives to recognize areas in need and to find ways to serve those who have seemingly become invisible. Every day, hundreds of people turn to LFS for refuge, help and hope.
We don’t do it alone! The hallmark of serving through LFS has always been a shared sense of being in this together; joined at the heart with volunteers, clients, donors and neighbors.
