LSF is committed to the wellbeing and safety of children and the strengthening of families. Every child, regardless of background, deserves the best start possible. We offer counseling and mental health services, foster and adoption services, youth shelters, and more. We have also partnered with Head Start to provide a variety of early childhood education services. Learn more below.
The first five years of a child’s life are essential in preparing them for a healthy, happy, and successful future. When children receive the quality early childhood education they deserve, not only do children fare better, but communities do, too. Learn more about the variety of services offered through Head Start and Early Head Start below.
All children deserve the love and care of responsible adults in a safe and caring environment. LSF offers a variety of child welfare services to ensure the safety and security of children as well as strengthening and preserving families whenever possible.
No one prepares parents for the challenges faced when raising a family, especially during their teen years. LSF offers free individual and family counseling through a family strengthening program formerly known as CINS/FINS.
LSF Youth and Teens Services offers short-term, residential shelters for runaways and troubled youth, as well as individual and family counseling. Our goal is to protect and house teens in crisis and reunite them with their families whenever possible.
