Our Mission Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska expresses God´s
love for all people by providing quality human care services that build
and strengthen individual, family, and community life.
Our Vision Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska will be the agency
of first choice by clients, professionals, funders and donors for behavioral health
and human care services based upon the Agency’s high quality of service, fiscal
integrity and faith-based mission and values.
Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska (LFS) is a faith-based, not-for-profit, multi-service human care agency with more than 30 locations across Nebraska and locations in Council Bluffs, Iowa and Wichita, Kansas.
Impacting over 35,000 individuals annually, our mission is to provide human care services that build and strengthen individual, family and community life. LFS’ services-ranging from prevention to intensive treatment-are as diverse as the people we serve. LFS’ programs and services are available to everyone regardless of age, race, religion or income.
The work of LFS is supported by caring members of our community whose contributions help make services available for those unable to pay full fee. In fact, 85% of all donations go directly to client services.
LFS is community-based. The agency seeks to build on individual, family and community strengths and restore individuals back into healthy relationships in families and community whenever possible. The agency is accredited by the Council on Accreditation for Children and Family Services (COA), a confirmation of the agency’s ongoing commitment to quality care.
As a multi-service agency, LFS demonstrates its mission through three broad service areas:
Behavioral Health, including mental health counseling, sexual abuse/incest treatment, substance abuse treatment, gambling addiction treatment, and specialized counseling for children, adolescents, adults and families;
Children Services, providing infant, international and foster care adoption services and searches, foster care, pregnancy counseling, respite care, maternal health care and family support services; and
Community Services, offering services to immigrants,
refugee services, and preventative education.
We are committed to remaining an agency of the Lutheran church,
serving all who seek help and hope.
We will continue to faithfully respond to growing and changing individual, family and community needs.
We will continue partnering with congregations and other community-based
organizations to deliver quality human care services.
