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.

Refugee Volunteer Orientation – Denver @ Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains
Jun 1 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

This is the first step to volunteering with our Cultural Mentoring program. During this session, you will learn about the current refugee situation, our co-sponsorship partnership with Denver Rescue Mission, and how to befriend and serve newly arrived refugee families and individuals. During an interactive training, you will have a chance to ask questions and role-play in kinds of situations you may encounter.

Parking: There is parking at our office: 1600 Downing Street, Denver, CO 80218. There is also plenty of free street parking. Your car WILL NOT be towed using our parking lot after 5:30pm or on Saturday morning.

​Food: You are welcome to bring food and a beverage as long as 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 conference room space used for the training can make it a big distraction for those attending.

Registration is required. This training is for volunteers in the Denver area.
