Children's Services

LFS began in 1892 as an orphanage in Fremont, Nebraska, and we have been there to serve children every day since. Today, we provide for the needs of children and teens through a wide variety of programs, focusing on Prevention and Early Intervention and Permanency and Well-Being.
