Who we are

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.

Refugee 101 – Denver @ Belong Church
Oct 23 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This is the first step to volunteering with our refugee programs. During this session you will learn about the current refugee situation, what it takes to get involved, the application process, and about advocacy. We strive to stand in solidarity with refugees using patience, resilience, and compassion.

Parking: There are limited parking spaces available at the church, and additional parking at our office down the street: 1600 Downing Street, Denver, CO 80218. There is also plenty of free street parking. Your car WILL NOT be towed using either of these lots after 5:30pm.

Food: You are welcome to bring food and a beverage as long is it isn’t a distraction for others or yourself.

Children: We encourage you to bring children if you plan to have them involved. We do ask that you are considerate if you bring babies and toddlers as the acoustics in the facility can make it a big distraction for those attending.

Registration is required.
