Over 5,000 children experienced abuse or neglect in 2018; a statistic that crosses all socioeconomic and educational levels, religions, ethnic and cultural groups. When adverse childhood experiences such as abuse and neglect are not addressed, lifelong medical, mental and social suffering can occur. Through our behavioral health, community prevention, child development and family services, LFCS nurtures and supports children and families who are at risk. Our services offer real solutions that lead to safety, permanency and well-being for those we serve.

In 2010, LFCS began operating in Franklin County by providing parent education and pregnancy services to families in need out of local Lutheran Churches. Since that time, LFCS has grown to include several additional services.  We opened the LFCS office in Union in October 2014. The services provided by LFCS are open to everyone regardless of race, faith, national origin, gender, or age.  Over 80% of the clients served are not of the Lutheran faith.

The Franklin County office serves children and families through:
