Located in Virginia, Minn., the LSS Family Resource Center is committed to keeping children safe by providing services to children, youth and families experiencing conflict, crisis or major difficulties.

We emphasize the importance of responsible behavior in forming healthy relationships. We use a strengths-based approach to help youth overcome behavioral and environmental issues.

Who We Serve

The LSS Family Resource Center serves youth who are referred by social service providers, the court system, area law enforcement and probation. Our professional, trained staff provide support for youth who have experienced:

  • Family conflict
  • Parental neglect
  • Running away
  • Substance abuse
  • Behavioral or mental health challenges
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Truancy or school challenges


The Range Youth Shelter

A 10-bed, 24-hour shelter that offers emergency, short-term care to children and youth ages 0 – 17.

Runaway & Homeless Youth Program

Offers 24-hour safe shelter to youth 17 years and younger who have run away or are experiencing homelessness. Our purpose is to encourage and assist them in the resolution of problems, and to reunite youth with their families whenever possible.

Together for Youth

An inclusive, supportive and welcoming group for LGBTQ youth and allies ages 14 – 20. Through meetings, educational presentations, one-on-one support, and advocacy, our goal is to affirm the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and allied youth.
