Lutheran Family Services walks with the vulnerable through services that heal, strengthen and provide hope. In Colorado Springs we work to prevent child abuse and neglect through a free respite child-care center, and a home visitation program. We also support foster youth through safe placement and supportive services, and help refugees successfully resettle in the community.
When parents are overwhelmed by the demands of caring for a child, or face a crisis, they need support. LFS provides free respite child care, allowing parents some time away from their responsibilities to address personal needs and maintain their commitment to parenting their children. This is a preventative measure that enhances quality of care, and ensures healthy and safe living situations for children.
LFS needs volunteers and donations including: support with child care, carpet cleaning, home repair services, and donations of diapers, pull-ups, wipes, baby food, formula, toys, puzzles and games.
