Founded in 1982, LSF currently touches the lives of 1 in 50 Floridians every year through various programs, including early education, youth shelters, foster care, refugee and resettlement services, substance abuse mental health services, and adult guardianship. Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, LSF has more than 60 programs throughout Florida and approximately 1,200 dedicated employees.

Stories

LSF is incredibly fortunate to have Eliana in our Manatee County Case Management Organization. She brings a wealth of knowledge in social services and child abuse prevention. She’s held a wide range of positions from a Health and Human Services Advisor in the Office of Latino Affairs, Community Schools Coordinator at the Latin American Youth Center in D.C. to working in specialized programs for children who were exposed to violence.

Testimony

We are pleased to welcome Renee Morrissette, a graduating member of the LSF Health Systems Certified Recovery Peer Specialist (CRPS) training program who is now working with our Training Institute as a Success Specialist.

Stories

While voting has ended, the results of this election are now in the hands of state and local officials charged with counting and certifying the vote tally.

At this time, I ask you to join me in praying for those shouldering this responsibility.

Children & Families

On this #NationalAdoptionMonth, we celebrate the 4,548 children in Florida who were adopted during fiscal year 2019-2020. Approximately 700 children are still waiting to meet their forever family.

Stories

As our CEO Sam Sipes pointed out, asking “who are you voting for” can be a trigger for lively conversations and that’s no different for my family. Whether we agree or disagree, we must focus on unity.

Events

LSF has three, soon to be four, established programs in Sarasota and surrounding counties that serve those in need. Learn more about LSF Adult Advocacy, Comprehensive Refugee Services, and Child Welfare Case Management.

Many children entering the foster care system come from homes where abuse or neglect was their reality. When they arrive at our doors, it is often with only the clothes on their backs and sometimes not even a pair of shoes on their feet. On this #childabusepreventionmonth, we ask you to help children in foster care by making sure every child has a new pair of shoes. #heartandsoledrive #ThrivingFamilies #CAPMonth2021

How can you help?

1️⃣Donate funds: lsfnet.org/heartandsole/
2️⃣Purchase shoes on our Amazon wishlist: bit.ly/LSFshoedrive
3️⃣Drop off a pair of new shoes at one of our drop-off locations.
