Lutheran Family Services
Inspired by the compassionate love of Christ, Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains walks with the vulnerable, through services that heal, strengthen, and provide hope. We believe that all people, from the newborn infant to the most elderly person, deserve to be valued in our community. Therefore, Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains is committed to offering love and support to the people it serves, regardless of race, religion, gender, or age, to help equip them to live full and whole lives.
LFS was founded in 1948 to provide adoptive placement for babies and has since added services for birth parents, foster care, older adult services, refugee resettlement, immigration legal services, prevention services, parenting support for at-risk or struggling families and case management for survivors of disasters. From its roots in the Denver area, LFS has grown to 10 offices along the Front Range and one in Albuquerque, NM.
