Lutheran Family Services Celebrates 126 Years of Service

FREMONT – In 1892, Trinity Lutheran Church opened an orphanage in Fremont to serve as the home for displaced and unwanted children in Nebraska. Since then, their mission to help produce healthy, successful children has grown and grown, eventually becoming Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska, and the Rupert Dunklau Center for Healthy Families. Next week, they’ll hold a special celebration of that mission.

LFS of Nebraska will hosts “Fremont Family Friends 2018” on Tuesday, June 5th, at the Fremont Golf Club. “The LFS spirit of caring continues to run deep in the community at the Rupert Dunklau Center for Healthy Families in Fremont,” according to Kathy O’Hara Brehm. The Center helps families and children break negative cycles and reach success right here in Freont.

“Fremont Family Friends 2018” is an annual celebration of services and supporters that help guide parents and families with young children through parenting, early intervention and prevention programs. Investments of time and treasure help Lutheran Family Services break the cycle of poverty, child abuse, neglect and isolation. They clear the way for families to empower themselves, with a goal of self-sufficiency.

Now in its 126th year of service, LFS celebrates more than 3,500 families that have grown stronger at the Rupert Dunklau Center, with powerful incentive-based programs offered free of charge that include childhood mental health therapies, parenting classes and support groups that encourage positive, healthy behaviors.

You’re invited to join them at the Fremont Golf Club – 2710 N Somers Ave at 5:30 p.m. (Reception 6:30 p.m.) for dinner, presentations and a live auction.

Guests at the event will be supporting the Rupert Dunklau Center for Healthy Families. RSVPs are required and can be sent to
