Supported Living Residences and Community-Based Services for Adults with Disabilities

LFS offers comfortable homes in residential neighborhoods for adults coping with varying degrees of autism, mental illness, symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injury, or a broad range of intellectual or developmental disabilities. Though self-sufficiency is taught and encouraged in these homes, many clients may continue to live with LFS throughout their lives.

LFS also offers Specialized Family Homes, also known as host homes. A host home is a private home where an individual with an intellectual and/or developmental disability or brain injury can receive individualized support and services from a host family in their home, similar to the foster care model. Host families are recruited, trained and supervised by LFS and undergo a rigorous licensing process.

LFS Home and Community-Based Services are designed to provide the least restrictive level of formal supports needed for individuals with brain injuries. Both habilitative and rehabilitative interventions are personalized for each individual based on his or her goals. These services are designed to help those with brain injuries in attaining their highest desired level of independence.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities
Adults

LFS works with departments of social services and with caring individuals in our communities to provide safe, loving homes for children in need. LFS offers the full continuum of foster care services, including family foster care, specialized foster care for medically fragile children, therapeutic foster care and a highly specialized service called Intensive Alternative Family Treatment.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
At-risk youth

Since 1979, LFS has offered refuge to people who have suffered persecution in their homelands. Many of these individuals escape with little more than the clothes on their backs and all are in need of a safe place to call home. In partnership with other organizations, LFS offers welcome to vulnerable refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking and other immigrants and helps ease their transition into a new culture and a new life.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
Families

LFS offers private adoption services as well as an adopt-from-foster care program to help identify loving adoptive families for children in need.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Lutheran Family Services in the Carolinas strives to provide abundant life for children, adults, and families in the Carolinas. The organization believes in delivering high quality, innovative, empowering, multi-generational, person-centered, and inclusive programs and services.

LFS is committed to empowering others to grow physically, socially, financially, and emotionally within environments that foster independence, choice, and security.

LFS partners with other nonprofit organizations, government agencies, civic groups, and faith communities across the Carolinas and beyond to serve the most vulnerable children, adults, and families in North and South Carolina. The organization uses a variety of evidence-based and evidence-informed practices to ensure services are effective and appropriate to promote healing and wholeness.

LFS focuses on providing the highest quality of care to those it serves and has extensive experience working with special populations, including children and adolescents; adults with traumatic brain injuries, severe and persistent mental illness, and intellectual and/or developmental disabilities; refugees; and families recovering from natural disasters. The agency has extensive clinical and administrative capacity and has well-established, robust quality management and improvement processes in place. The adoption of evidence-based and trauma-informed services demonstrates its commitment to quality and effectiveness and the agency has been continuously accredited by the Council on Accreditation since 2004.

Recent accomplishments include creating a statewide foster family recruitment team in North Carolina to care for more children in need; establishing a new supported living residence in Durham, NC for adults with traumatic brain injuries; and opening two new recovery residences in South Carolina (in Greenwood and Columbia) for adults working towards long-term sobriety.

LFS is proud to share its annual accomplishments through its annual report, which highlights both programmatic accomplishments and its financial position. This report is readily available on its website.
