At Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, we understand that family plays a significant role in a person’s life. No matter if you’re family by blood, by choice or by circumstance, the relationships you have with family and the things happening at home can have a huge influence on your thoughts, behaviors, emotions and well-being.

Whether you’re seeking services for a child, yourself or the entire family, our children’s therapeutic services offer a wide variety of therapeutic services and support, including:

Statewide Programs

Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Services

Children develop rapidly in their early years. Our staff is trained to work with infants, children and their families from an early age. We provide assessments that will help you understand your child’s behavior, child-specific therapies and parent/guardian education.

Services for Military Children and Families

Our trauma-competent staff has experience working with service members and their families to support healing and improved quality of life. Whether your child is struggling to understand a parent’s absence during deployment, needing help with the reintegration process or any other emotional or behavioral support, our staff will work with you and your child to help build resiliency and promote stability.

Therapeutic Foster Care

Understanding the trauma faced by children in foster care, our staff provides behavioral and mental health services and support for foster children and foster parents. We strive for stability, safety and health moving children and families towards permanency.
