FOUR DECADES OF CHANGED LIVES

LSF started with humble beginnings in 1982 in Tampa Bay, Belle Glade, and Ft. Lauderdale Florida primarily serving refugees. Over the years LSF steadily expanded services to meet the needs of our communities, adding youth shelters, counseling programs, food programs, and child welfare and adoption services to the growing refugee and guardianship programs. We’ve grown to nearly 1,400 people serving hundreds of thousands of clients across 43 counties in over 65 programs.
