Map of Southeast Missouri Counties

In 1973, Lutheran Family and Children’s Services of Missouri (LFCS) a non-profit social services agency, opened a regional office in Cape Girardeau in response to an increasing demand for crisis pregnancy, adoption and foster care services.  The agency itself began as an orphanage in 1868 with a mission to protect and nurture children without a home.  Today the agency continues the mission of helping families, children and individuals in Missouri experience greater hope and wholeness of life. The services provided by LFCS are open to everyone regardless of race, faith, national origin, gender, or age. Over 80 percent of the clients served are not of the Lutheran faith.
