Moms are SPECIAL! This Mother's Day honor the women who have made a difference in your life with a gift worthy of her - while helping give other women the gift of motherhood.

Give a gift that lasts by sending a card through LFCS, along with a tribute in the name of each the special mom in your life, and include your personal message of why they each mean so much to you. (After making your donation you will receive an email with instructions on how to submit the recipient’s details.)


Last year, the Southwest Office of LFCS served hundreds of local children, women, and families through pregnancy, parenting and adoption services, foster parent programming, and counseling. As one adoption client shared, "Through LFCS, we grew a family! I became a mom." Your gift will grow even more families this year. 

Your tribute to your mother makes a huge difference! We hope you’ll share with each of the special women who have left a LASTING LEGACY OF LOVE in your life!

About Lutheran Family and Children's Services

LFCS is first and foremost a crisis pregnancy counseling center and adoption agency. In Southwest Missouri we also offer mental health counseling starting as young as age 2, and work with the state foster care system to train and case manage foster families. Greene County has over 700 children in the foster care system which is the highest statistic in the state. And we recently were granted the privilege of serving four additional counties, doubling our foster parent case management and the foster children in their homes to over 400. With 53% of foster children being adopted by their foster parents it is crucial to have these children in individual homes rather than facilities. Making that happen is our mission. And as a result our SWMO office has, by far, the highest annual adoption rate of all of our regional locations across the state!
