St. Charles Office
In 2012, Lutheran Family and Children’s Services of Missouri (LFCS), a non-profit social services agency, opened a regional office in St. Charles to meet the increasing demand for adoption, foster care, crisis pregnancy, and counseling services in this community. 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.
