Mission Statement

Embracing Christ’s call to serve, LFS Carolinas walks with the most vulnerable in our communities toward healing and wholeness.

Description

LFS Carolinas has served the Carolinas’ most vulnerable people since 1976. The agency grew from the roots of Lutheran Orphanage of the South, founded in 1888 in Salem, Virginia. As a social ministry organization of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we respond to Christ’s call to serve all people, regardless of race, national origin, orientation, religion or creed.

LFS Carolinas provides safe haven for children in crisis, adults with special needs, refugees and individuals and families at risk of becoming homeless or struggling to recover from disaster. Local program sites are coordinated from offices in Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte, N.C., and Columbia, S.C.

We offer accredited programs that promote healing and wholeness and collaborate with faith and civic organizations, other human service providers and government agencies. Eighty-five percent of contributions go directly to helping vulnerable people.

LFS Carolinas is part of Lutheran Services in America, the largest non-profit social ministry organization in the United States - LSA affiliates touch one in 50 Americans annually.
