No one should have to walk through life alone, especially children. For more than 60 years, your support has allowed our staff to connect hundreds of children throughout the DC Metro Area with loving, supportive families through our adoption and foster care programs.
LSS/NCA offers three foster care services, including traditional/therapeutic foster care, foster care to adoption, and care for unaccompanied refugee minors. The services provided across each are similar and include orientation, training, support, and respite for our foster care families. We also recruit volunteers to help families provide the children with tutoring, mentoring, and educational and recreational outings.
In addition to foster care, LSS/NCA offers adoption home studies as families walk through the process of aiding a child in finding a permanent home and Youth Haven programming which provides vulnerable children and young adults guidance in living healthy lifestyles.
We invite you to learn more about the range of programming within Children's Services.
