Lutheran Family Services

1. Each year in Colorado, thousands of kids are unable to live with their biological parents because of abuse or neglect. We need families who can provide temporary care until children reunify with their parent as well as families willing to adopt children and teens in foster care if they can’t return to their families. An informal Q & A session for foster care will be held on January 9 from 12:30-1:30pm and from 5:30-6:30pm at the LFS Denver Metro office (363 S. Harlan Street, Suite 105, Denver, 80226). Please register with Anne atanne.hamilton@lfsrm.org or 303-217-5869. One-on-one meetings can also be arranged to work around your busy schedule.

2. The refugee program had a busy fall with increased refugee arrivals, and we hope to welcome even more refugees in the coming year, so we need your help! We are low on bedding (sheet sets, bed-sized blankets, comforters, and pillows) and cookware (pots and pans). Can you help give a warm welcome a new refugee family by donating new or gently used items? If so, contact Jaime at jaime.blanchard@lfsrm.org or 303-217-5181.

3. Silent auction item donations are needed for the 25th Annual Gala, LFS’ largest annual fundraiser! Individuals and groups are encouraged to put together a donation. Can you donate a gift basket, gift certificate, or item to help raise funds for our human service programs? All ideas and items are welcome! All contributions are tax deductible. For more information or to schedule a pick-up, contact Katie Scherr at katie.scherr@lfsrm.org.
