Organization History and Description:
Founded in 1883, LCFS has provided child welfare services in the community for over 16 years. Initially serving the community as an orphanage, LCFS has continued to adapt and evolve over time to address changing needs of children and families. The organization currently offers a focused array of child welfare programs through a targeted continuum of care that includes an intensive, secure (locked) residential program to serve youth with severe emotional and behavioral difficulties; an independent living group home for young men; home-based family preservation and counseling services, and emergency shelter care. LCFS addresses behavioral difficulties that are the result of past histories of complex trauma, often the result of abuse and/or neglect. Additionally, since the early 1970's LCFS has provided for the basic needs of the most vulnerable in the community through a food pantry and clothing give-away program.
