Greater Charlotte / Triangle / South Carolina
Thousands of children in North and South Carolina experience abuse or neglect. Too often these children are left without the love and support they need to lead happy and productive lives. Foster parents guide and support children through unimaginable struggles and challenges. With LFS supervision and support, loving families provide care to more than 500 children across the Carolinas each year.
LFS offers family and therapeutic foster care to meet the special physical and emotional needs of the vulnerable children in our care. Some children suffer from medical problems such as fetal alcohol syndrome and drug addiction. Older children can have emotional and behavioral issues and are given counseling when needed. Many families will have the opportunity to adopt when reunification with a child’s biological family is not possible. Finding permanent, safe, and supportive families for children is the goal of LFS Foster Care.
