No one should have to walk through life alone, especially children. Through Family & Community Services, LSS/NCA creates families, strengthens bonds, and encourages youth to be the best versions of themselves.
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. By offering private adoption services and individualized case management, we connect perspective parents with multiple placement agencies and prepare homes and families for the arrival of a new child. Similarly, foster care and case management services encourage new foster parents to open their homes and hearts to Unaccompanied Refugee Minors (URM) who have lost their families and been forced to flee their homes.
Through the Youth Development & Wellness program, youth are encouraged to adapt healthy habits, build self-esteem, and succeed while overcoming emotional and physical challenges. Retreats, peer support groups, and care navigation lend long-lasting support that ensures the immediate and future well-being of each individual.
We invite you to learn more about the range of programming within Family and Community Services.
