LSM BRICKHOUSE PROGRAM
LSM BrickHouse serves Indiana families through Free Family Counseling and Adoption/Foster Care Support
LSM supports foster and adoptive families living in Northeast Indiana by providing a FREE family counseling service to children and adults. Contact Adam Carroll to learn more about this service.
We provide assistance above and beyond foster family counseling to young people in the community in need of other services, such as mentoring and vocational aid.

LSM BRICKHOUSE HISTORY
Starting as a local Bluffton, IN ministry, BrickHouse began serving vulnerable young men through a residential program in 2006. They expanded to two local properties – an in-town location used for offices and a school along with a residential home on a fully functioning 40-acre farm and store that contributes to the long-term sustainability of the program. It also provides valuable life skills for the boys living there.
In August 2019, BrickHouse merged with Loving Shepherd Ministries to reimagine programs and expand their outreach to more hurting young men and women in the foster care system and beyond. It’s been very exciting to bring the same trauma recovery, discipleship and development resources that have been successful in Haiti and Ethiopia back to the U.S. to meet the needs of vulnerable young people living here at home.
WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT LSM BRICKHOUSE
BECOME A MENTOR
The best person to guide any of us on our path to obtaining a new quality of character or new set of skills is a mentor, someone who has walked the path ahead of us. Mentors are particularly crucial to the hard-to-place foster youth, such as those served by LSM BrickHouse. Do you have a skill that you would like to teach our children, like leadership or public speaking? Contact us today!
ADVOCATE FOR US
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this new outreach of LSM. We ask that you cover this ministry expansion in prayer. Through significant restructuring of BrickHouse and their work, we pray that we could develop the LSM BrickHouse Program into a God-honoring, fruitful ministry that helps vulnerable young people become healthy, thriving adults.
