advocacyWhat does advocacy mean to you?
Advocacy: the opportunity to influence those you’ve elected into government office for the benefit of you and your community. You took the time to vote for these officials, so make sure they know what is important to you! As part of our Mission, Lutheran Family & Children’s Services is called to help families, children and individuals experience greater hope and wholeness of life … and issues around child welfare & adoption, health & mental health care, youth protection & development and Missouri’s budget are vital components of that.  LFCS Advocacy works to support the programs and clients of the agency and we can use your help.
Your voice makes a difference!
LFCS provides incredible services such as counseling, adoption, crisis/ unplanned pregnancy assistance, foster care, child care, youth mentoring and disaster response services, which spans nearly every walk of life! We are asking for your support in ensuring that our government officials keep in mind what is best for ALL Missourians, particularly those listed above.  Whether they are a client, a friend, a family member, neighbor, or a church member – this is your chance to make a difference and speak up for those in need. Join the Online Advocacy Network and respond to Action Alerts when your voice can make a difference for children and families.  CLICK HERE
