Lutheran Family and Children's Services Foundation




Lutheran Family and Children’s Services of Missouri (LFCS) is a not-for-profit social services organization serving the State of Missouri. The organization has been in existence since 1868, when it was founded as a residence for children left homeless after the Civil War.

LFCS has made progressive program changes over its 150 year history in order to meet the shifting needs of children and families in Missouri. The organization’s mission is to help families, children, and individuals experience greater hope and wholeness of life.

Services and programs in SWMO include:
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Adoption Services
  • Crisis/Unplanned Pregnancy Assistance
  • Foster Care Licensing
  • Foster Care Prevention Program
  • Disaster Relief Services
  • Advocacy on behalf of children and families

Over the past 45 years, LFCS has extended its physical presence from the St. Louis area across the state, expanding services into Cape Girardeau, then in Columbia, and finally, in 1998, in Springfield. Time and time again, LFCS has taken on new challenges and expanded its capacity to serve children based on the needs of each community.
