About LCFS

LCFS traces its roots to 1873 when several Lutheran churches in northern Illinois established the German Evangelical Lutheran Orphan Home in Addison, Illinois. Opening its doors that year to six young children, the orphan home grew quickly and expanded its services over the years. Today, LCFS has more than 400 employees at more than 20 office sites across Illinois and in neighboring states partnering to provide impactful and values-driven services for the betterment of those we serve.
