Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains is a faith based, non-profit human service agency providing adoption, foster care, older adult caregiver, prevention, and refugee services since 1948. We help children and families during their most challenging times regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or age. We believe that all people, from the newborn to the most elderly, are valued members of our community. Every day we provide help and support to children and families, because everyone deserves hope during the most challenging times of their lives.
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.
Ways You Can Help
Open your heart, open your home – considering becoming a Foster Parent! As a foster parent you’ll change not only the life of a child but your own.
Donate – help ensure sustainability of LFS programs helping our most vulnerable neighbors.
Volunteer – we are always in need of volunteers!
Our African American Family Caregiver Support program offers a full spectrum of caregiver support and training. This program has been serving the community for over 15 years. If you are a family caregiver, caring for a loved one age 60 and older, we are here for you!
Our support group is for those providing care to an older relative or loved one. We meet the first and second Wednesday of every month at noon. Please bring a potluck dish to share if you are able. Otherwise, just bring yourself.
Respite funds may be available so that you can attend without worrying about your loved one. Call us at 303-217-5839 for more information.
In our community, we don’t just care for our loved ones, we HONOR them.
Please join us every month for the Ask Your Care Manager series. Each month will be a new topic.
