A beautiful evening of a room full of emotions occurred last week as LSF celebrated 40 years! With over 100 attendees, the celebration focused on the impact that LSF has had over the state of Florida and specifically here in Tampa Bay. LSF started with humble beginnings in 1982 in Tampa Bay, Belle Glade, and Ft. Lauderdale Florida primarily serving refugees. Over the years LSF steadily expanded services to meet the needs of our communities, adding youth shelters, counseling programs, food programs, and child welfare and adoption services to the growing refugee and guardianship programs. We’ve grown to over 1,500 people serving hundreds of thousands of clients across 43+ counties in over 65 programs.

They are always looking for business partners to walk along side them – through partnerships to employ LSF clients; supporting donation drives; and sponsoring events and other needs. LSF looks forward to participating in Valspar this year and is seeking eager volunteers!
