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 Wednesday, April 11 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 at anne.hamilton@lfsrm.orgor 303-217-5869. One-on-one meetings can also be arranged to work around your busy schedule.
  2. Join us for the LFS 70th Anniversary Benefit Gala at the Cable Center on Saturday, April 21! We are delighted to announce that we will be presenting a video immersion event, which will allow guests to embark on a journey that leads them through the lives of LFS clients. The Gala will feature a night of dinner, entertainment, an auction, and companionship, along with celebrating 70 years of serving individuals and families in need in our community. Please register at www.LFSRM.org/events.
  3. The refugee program is a charity partner with the Colfax Marathon in 2018! The race will happen Saturday and Sunday, May 19 & 20.

  4. Two boys in our foster careprogram, ages 7 and 8, want to attend day camp this summerwhile their foster parents work.  The opportunity to participate in swimming, martial arts, trips to the zoo and museums, dance, and other activities would greatly enhance their summer vacations, and the vacations of many other children in foster care.  If you would like to make a donation to help create these meaningful experiences, please contact Alice Wurst at alice.wurst@lfsrm.org or 303-217-5859.

As always, please do let me know if you no longer wish to receive our monthly announcements or if there is an updated contact.  Thank you for your continued partnership!
