Welcome to Legacy Family Services

We are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of foster children, foster parents, and biological parents so that families can be strengthened and individuals can achieve their full potential in life.

Foster Care offers a unique opportunity to participate in the molding and development of another human being, whose nurturing has been put at risk at no fault of their own.

The emotional and spiritual benefits that are achieved in this effort are out weighed by very few things in life. For an adult to make a positive impact on a child's life is something that will resonate for generations to come.
